@Al Adams - I suggest you don't have a VL selected - i.e. you're looking at All Books, look in the Window Title it's also shown there -- this is what I see

IIRC in V2 there was a tweak to do the highlighting, but I can't find it in V3 - I had it set to 'transparent' so I hadn't noticed its absence 'til now.

.. Sorry I Was Not intending to Appear as Shouting - but I needed the emphasis on those words as it appeared that My intent of My concern was not being understood correctly ... ??? Still not Sure if it is understood, yet ???

I Don't know if this falls under a Bug Report ??? - But it Should be Changed Back to having the Box Around the Virtual Library when one of those Virtual Libraries is OPEN - for the Vision issue at least ... ie - I use a Black Screen with Yellow & Blue with White Font Settings for My OverDrive Public Library Usage See Pic ... Example ...

In version 2 the VL name could be highlighted, which is what your first post shows. As I explained that was controlled by a tweak, which is absent from V3. If you submit a bug report the highlight box will either be put back as it was, or you will be a given a reason why it can't.

The highligh box was put there originally because the VL feature was new and I did not want people to get confused by it. THat is no longer the case, so I'm afraid it is not going to be restored.

I May be Forced to Go back to a Previous Version and Not Do any updating in the future - I Only updated because of a Perceived Bug - in the calibre Viewer/Reader - the update Didn't Correct the bug anyway ...
