Expected behaviour

Selected text should have another background color than unselected text.

Actual behaviour

If "Use color from the system theme" is disabled (for current note or globally), then a selected text looks exactly like unselected text.

Steps to reproduce the behaviour

  1. Add the StickyNotes applet to the panel at the bottom
  2. Create a new note by double-clicking the StickyNotes icon
  3. Enter some text and select a part of it
  4. Right-click titlebar of note or the StickyNotes icon and then click "Properties"
  5. Disable "Use color from the system theme"
  6. Repeat step 4

Package version

mate-applets 1.18.1

Linux Distribution

Linux Mint 18.2 MATE

According to muktupavels the problem is that gtk_widget_override_background_color function overrides both backgrounds - text and selection.
See #236 (comment)

Confirmed, though it looks like the fix would be bigger than the one for #236:
