Highlight selected code focus change


I may be missing something obvious here but when I am working in the editor and highlight a section of code, it is highlighted as expected. However, when I click away from the editor, either into a tool panel, menu or another application entirely, the highlight colour stays exactly the same. This often leads me to think I am focused on the editor whereas I am actually still focused elsewhere.

Most applications will fade the highlight colour when the window loses focus, and PHPStorm does this in the tool windows, but not in the editor.

Is there a setting that allows for this? I have looked but maybe I have missed it?

Thanks for any help.
