Does anyone know how to change the background and color of the IDE to a more contrasting color scheme? I did a search and nothing came up. And what I found on google didn''t work. Any ideas? I''d like to have it a bit more colorful so I can see it a bit better. Thanks, Lu

Now, how do you guys/gals set up your colors?

Coming from other IDE's...

Green == Comments
Blue == variables
Red == Color of the devil

And I usually like to have my background black. Any suggestions on what to change and what to leave alone? Or is this all personal preference?

peace,

Lu

I use visual studio and i kinda like their syntax highlighting.
It''s pretty much like yours. Only ''commands'' are blue, variables arent collered.
Oh and you can get VisualAssist, which will do more coloring(its pretty good).
