    I have a problem with setting the selection color in Kendo Editor in inline mode.
    What I've discovered is that if a text inside the editor is not formatted everything is fine (meaning, selecting text with mouse highlight it with system defined color). Eveything breaks when add some styling. Bolding or underscoring text results in while color when selecting text.

    I've observed the same issue on Components page (

    What could be the solution for this issue?

    Hello Pawel,

    The Editor's selection depends on the following styles:

    .k-editor-inline ::selection {
        background-color: ...;
        text-shadow: none;
        color: ...;

    For the Material theme, the background color and text color are both white, which is a bug and we have just fixed it. While changes take effect in our next Kendo UI builds, you can override the above rule and set other colors of your preference.

    Thank you for bringing the issue to our attention.
