Description Michael Barraclough 2021-04-12 17:07:12 UTC
There should be a way to change the small arrow background color of the AutoFilter when "filtered", ie when a selection is active?

Currently, the down arrow changes from white/black to blue on the column where the auto filter is active. This can be extremely difficult to see.

It would be much better if:

    the foreground and background colours reversed when selected, or
    the arrow became significantly bigger, or
    the background colour changes to, say, orange, or
    anything that would make it easier to see which column has an active auto filter

Generally, I love LibreOffice Calc. However, this is a major UI fail.

In 7.2 we'll have inverted color for active autofilter. See ReleaseNotes
