Screenshot on Ubuntu 16.04: Dark is activated, Gray is selected

The new 6 fields with predefined/preinstalled Firefox themes are really cool. Thanks for your work, Muhammet Kara.

I tested on Ubuntu 16.04. Maybe on Windows/MacOS it's better.

It should be more obvious which preinstalled theme is activated and which is selected by mouse/keyboard. At minimum a thicker border around the activated theme should be visible, similar to selected color/gradient/etc. in the paragraph area fill dialog. The "selected" color can also be thicker.

STR:
1 Open LibreOffice and go to Tools > Options...> LibreOffice[Dev] > Personalization.
2. Click at the preinstalled theme "Dark" and at "Apply".
3. Click at the preinstalled theme "Gray".

Actual result:
There is no visual indication which theme is activated after step 2.
Only a very small, bad visible colored border is drawn around the theme after step 3.

Expected result:
Obvious indication which theme is activated just now.
More obvious indication which color is selected (but not activated) by mouse/keyboard.

This is fixable by drawing the button “sunken”, as it is done in Start Center.

This is theme-dependent (IOW, “not our bug”). Why don’t you drop Ambiance for Yaru? 😊

How about an icon overlay in the thumbnail for the installed theme? Could be a checkmark or something else.

Activated (used) theme is still not visible in the Personalization section of the Options dialog.

An icon overlay is a possible solution.
