Default Can't see highlighted area

I cannot see the area That I have highlighted to make a corrections in Word, outlook or excel. I don't use Powerpoint but assume it is the same. I am on a Mac using 10.14.2 and Ms office is version 16.16
any help would be appreciated

Default Highlighted or selected

Call it anything you want But I cannot see the highlighted area that I have selected. Is there any way to make the highlighted/ selected area visible so I can tell if I have highlighted or selected the word that I am trying to correct

Your description suggests it's a Mac configuration issue, not an Office issue. Have you (or a system update) changed any of the Mac display settings lately? Does the problem affect non-Office applications also?

Smile you are correct

This is system wide. I will have to call Apple support.
