formatting a slicer drop-down

I have a report that uses a dark theme.  If my slicer has a black background with white text, the drop-down ends up being a white background with white text (aside from the one that has the mouse hovering)

 

How do I change the background color (white) of the drop-down?

Hi @Anonymous,

 

Normally, we could change the background color of the drop-down under item.

I'd like to re-open this thread, as Andyfoster states this isn't solved. 
Changes in Power BI / Fabric made it so that the background doesn't work correctly anymore and I experience the same issue: 

 

Background set to transparent, value color set to white and yet the background is also white instead of transparent:

Anyone know the solution to this?

Did you ever find a solution for this? I'm encountering this issue now. A workaround for now is to set the background to any color except transparent and then you can set the text color independently.

It's under "Values" now. See screenshot below

It seems like by default the background for the selected item is transparent but background for the dropdown is white. Once you select a colour it affects both.

What Power BI version are you using? I find it way too classy. PLease let me know.

My probleme is slightly different, the selection box on the left is black when selected, so we don't see it well, I haven't found any option to chose the color of the selection 😞

This items option is not there in 2022 May version. How to change color of values in drop down of slicer

It moved under Values -> Background. Hope this screen shot helps!

Thanks for this, it seems I cannot use the same tranparency as within the effects > background, which means I now have an ugly looking text background on the drop down, where as the title I have is nicely blended in to the back ground, I wanted the background to be the same transparency as the title MRR Band, the background option looks to be just a basic colour to choose, sadly.
