One more font color option for dark background in editor

I'm just wondering if there would be a possibility of adding another font colorization option for the editor, to use with very dark editor backgrounds? I changed the background to black but then the variables are not readable any longer and the two given choises 'Revolution classic' and 'Default' don't do the trick.

This question does come up from time to time, luckily -hh came up with (what I believe) is a near perfect solution.

It is fast, easy to implement, and works every time far as I can tell.

The colors are specified in a list somewhere in the IDE. I don't recall where offhand, but it shouldn't take too much sleuthing find them.

A tool for making custom Editor themes might make a nice afternoon project.

They are right in the script editor template script, in the first link I put Paul points them out (a few posts down the page here https://forums.livecode.com/viewtopic.p ... 54#p113439).

The 2nd link I posted include links to others projects such as SETH (script editor themer by Andy P., shaosean's handy attempt which was quite intriguing, and of course Hermann's little script and links to it. As well, there is the sts plugin, which allows you to use a completely different editor of your choosing, such as sublime text or atom or bbedit or any number of others.

Hi Guys
I see Seth 3.2 is available when downloading it is asking for a password.
I do not recall having to use a password with the previous version.

SETH is of course Andy P's plugin, and I'm pretty sure he is the only one that would know the answer to that kind of question :wink:

You can always contact him through his page http://2108.co.uk/
