Search word highlighting in high contrast modes

Use case or problem

Words highlighted through the Obsidian search function are not highlighted in Windows 11 high contrast modes.

Proposed solution

Design the highlighting in such a way, that the information does not get lost when high contrast modes are being used.

Current workaround (optional)

Turning of the high contrast mode.


It is not just the search word highlighting that would have to be reworked. Shift-selecting notes gives no indication on what’s being selected either. This should be addressed for people with visual impairments.

Just to be clear, this is a Windows 11 setting where you’re seeing this and nothing to do with a custom theme? (Not using Windows at the moment, so I cant’t have a look.)
