I am using spacemacs with evil mode.
If I type
/example, then ENTER, I will see all words matching
example highlighted on the page.
If I move my cursor within one of those
example words and type
SPC SPC what-cursor-position C-u ENTER, I see a dialog as below:
I take the font face identifier,
evil-search-highlight-persist-highlight-face, and add a custom theme for it in
theme-editor, which shows a preview of my changes. The lisp for my change looks like this:
'(evil-search-highlight-persist-highlight-face ((t (:background "#fff" :foreground "#002b36" :inverse-video t :box (:line-width 1 :color "#f38518")))))
This lisp is identical to the code for my cursor, which as you can see from the screenshot, is functional. (the orange border shows my cursor position).
However, here is a screenshot of some highlighted text, allegedly
Why isn't my custom face being applied? (I have saved and reloaded my theme and tried restarting emacs).
