How to change VS Xaml highlight bg more visible in dark mode?

In dark theme of VS 2019, I develop an UWP app.
When I select a control in design view, it highlight Xaml code.
But the highlight is very light and not stands out. It's not easy to locate the code.

It highlights well in light theme.

How can I change the highlight more visible?
I tried many way and couldn't find a way.

    Hello there! Thankfully this can be achieved by typing Fonts and Colors in the Search bar at the top of VS studio. Navigate to Inactive Selected Text, then change the background or highlight color.
