Add Option to Set Font Color of Selected Items in Slicer

In my dashboard I have a slicer which filters a large list of names. The default color for the text of a selected item seems to be black. My background color is black, so when an item is selected it makes it difficult to see. I have the color for my font set to be turquoise so unselected items show up fine. It would be nice to set the font color for selected items.

    This request could also provide the function of having a selectable colour for each item in the slicer to emulate the Legend. This would mean you could save space on the page from having both the slicer and the legend of the map graph for example.

    Need to change the color of the selected Items shown on the slicer. Currently the Background and Font Color under Items only applies to the unselected or inactive options.

    It would be great if color change functionality of the selected item is being provided on the power bi desktop.

    Currently, User is finding difficulty in reading a text after the selection is being made on the slicer (horizontal) as bg color becomes light grey and text color becomes white.

    Would also like to see the ability to change the colour of the selected value in a slicer. We have a black background with white text, which looks great until you try to distinguish between a selected (very dark grey with white text) and not selected value (black with white text).
