Change text selection color



New Member
Hey guys,

I am desperately searching how and where I can modify the color and style of how text looks when it is selected (with a cursor) on my site.
I was playing around with that at the very beginning of building my website and I remember I was adding somewhere some extra custom CSS code. However, in the customization of my Wordpress Theme (Astra) there is no such CSS code anymore.
I also tried to find a solution in the Elementor color/font settings but I cannot figure it out.
I really don't remember how I did it, and now all my words which are selected are in white text, with a dark red background color, which is not fitting anymore to the rest of my colors.

I cannot figure out if this must be changed in Elementor or in my Theme settings. I tried to play around with disabling /font/color in the Elementor settings, but it doesnt seem to have an effect on it.
