Like most Emacs users I have a setup!
But there's one thing I try not to set : faces etc. For one thing I'm not that good with color intuitions. Another: all previous experiences of doing this show it breaks in some corner cases.
But now I find that the
region face is so non-different from the rest (default) that it effectively (visually) does not exist. (Region behavior ok just color change absent)
Note that with
--reverse-video) a dark blue -- not optimal but at least visible -- appears.
But with plain default startup it's utterly invisible.
Other than explicitly setting the
region face, is there some option to make the region visible? [And is this some kind of regression? I've never had this before]
Emacs started with

Added in response to Nickd.

Searching around there does seem to be some bug:
And, reading between the lines, it seems the response is:
Bug : yes
Response: Wont fix
Oh Well 🙃
