Select Customize Colors from the View menu to customize the colors that V uses to display the file.

The colors used to display the file.
These colors are used to display highlighted/selected text. By default, these colors are the inverse of the text colors. That is, the background color is the text color and the text color is the background color.
Search Line Background/Text
When searching, the found text is displayed using the above highlighted colors.
Only the portion of the line that contains the found text will normally be highlighted. However, the part of the line that does not contain the found text may also be displayed in a different color to the standard text color. Doing this makes it easier to distinguish the line which contains the found text, especially if the found text is scrolled off the screen.

The second color will be used to display the line number for all lines that contain a Highlight All match.
