Custom color scheme for plain text? [solved since SVN r11530]
« on: December 15, 2018, 10:09:22 pm »
Hi again.

I`ve finally decided to make C::B my primary non-console text editor. (Bye-bye MEdit!)
The problem I currently have is that the default color scheme for text files is incompatible with my dark desktop environment.
I already have a nice custom dark scheme for C, Bash, Asm and Python, but plain text files are now a pain in the butt to edit.
The default black-on-white interacts exceptionally bad with my line highlighting color and cursor color, making the text I`m editing barely legible.
And there seems to be no «Plain text» option within Syntax Highlighting configuration tab.

How do I redefine the plain text colors?

It`s not.

These only work for code, and plain text isn`t treated as code in C::B.

Would it be this?

If it is not post an image, so I can understand.

Should be self-explanatory:

Ok, now I understand, but I can not help, I hope someone can.

After evaluating more, I think if you look at the code at:

http://wiki.codeblocks.org/index.php/Syntax_highlighting_custom_colour_themes#Volcanic

You should come to a conclusion as to how it is done, do not you think?

Look at the context of how it's done!

Install a night build. There we've added a plain text highlight support.  8) It is annoying I agree.
(most of the time I ignore long posts)

PKGBUILD compiled successfully.

Thanks a ton, dev team, now it`s working! And also the tab headers and toolbars now look a great deal better.
