This bug is actually a microbe, but once you see it, it will never leave you again. :D

Scrivener has two ways of picking preset highlight colors: yellow, orange, green, blue and pink. Either you can choose them from the dropdown menu (Format -> ) or you right-click on the highlight icon in the toolbar.

The preset green from the toolbar is off, though - it's noticably "dirtier" than the bright green from the menu. This may seem like the neglibility it is, but on the other hand, if you use the green marker a lot (I do!) it may actually become an annoyance.

Therefore, I'd be grateful if this could eventually get fixed. :)

It's not just the highlighters. For example, the dark green in the context menu (and which is called "dark green" in format search) is different from the dark green preset in the dropdown.

I'm glad you brought this up because it annoys me too. I think--but I'm not sure--that Scriv 3 will let us pick our own presets. At least I sure hope so.
