I have a terminal profile in which I changed the highlight color (let's say, to green). I didn't like it so I changed it back to blue. Now, whenever I am targeting the window and I highlight, the highlight color is blue, but if I click on another window (the terminal is now a background window), then the highlighted portion turns back to green.

How can I change the highlight color so that it stays the same as when the window is targeted?

Here is my terminal configuration file. The highlight color is Blue and is not changing to any other color when in the background.

  • @Laurbert515 please check. – kishoredbn Jan 26 '15 at 20:11
  • I used your method and the highlight color does actually change when I click on another window. It turns to a lighter color. – drjrm3 Jan 26 '15 at 20:52
  • Try this, Preference > Profile > Windows Tab > in Backgrounds option > click Color & Effects > uncheck Inactive Windows. – kishoredbn Jan 27 '15 at 21:17
  • Inactive Windows is already unchecked! – drjrm3 Jan 28 '15 at 13:24
