Is there an easy way to use custom color for Selection.CharacterFormat.HighlightColor? DarkRed is really too dark, while DarkYellow is more brown than orange etc.

Hi John, 
In Microsoft Word documents, there is defined only 15 Text Highlight Color. There is no way to specify custom color for Text Highlight Color. Please find the screenshot below 

The same scenario is updated in our SfRichTextBoxAdv control.
