This is a followup to bug #89841
Currently the active status of an autofilter is indicated by a blue dropdown arrow in the cell, and blue row numbers; similar to what Excel does.
An interesting (also: easily implementable) idea came up in the discussion of bug #89841: to make the whole dropdown blue, not only its arrow (which could be made white to make it stand out), as seen on mockup image attachment #169363 [details]
This bug is for discussing/implementing this idea.
+1, but I'd used a system color that column heading selecting uses
Created attachment 170490 [details]
Don't see a drawback. We could also just invert the colors (grey/white- depending on theme) which also makes the item outstanding but without trusting so much in colors.
Could be an easyhack...
