Has anyone had this problem? When I double click a layer in Photoshop CS6 to access the layer style menu. The menu item I select on the left side of the window gets a dark blue background highlight that is so dark I can't read the text against it. So let's say I have Inner Shadow selected... I can't read Inner Shadow anymore , it is just a big dark blue rectangle. On my coworker's computer the highlight is a different color and he can still read his highlighted menu item when it is selected.

The highlight color used comes from the highlight color set in the OS.
Yes, it is possible to set the OS highlight color to something so dark that text can't be read behind it.
