changing editor background colour

Post by bernardusgui » Thu Oct 18, 2018 12:02 pm

The answer to this question is probably right under my nose, but my search skills and Oxygen navigation abilities are failing me.

I have Oxygen 18.1 on Mac OS X El Capitan where I have configured the theme "graphite" and customized the code colouring. However I want a darker background colour for the editor - basically black (where the default is a very dark grey...with 50% transparency?). I've tried colour options in Preferences/Appearance/Colours, but that seems to effect every part of the interface EXCEPT the actual editor background.

Thank you.

Hi bernardusgui,

You should try set the "Editor background color" / "Author default background color" from Options > Preferences >Editor > Edit Modes > Text /Author to change the editor background in the "Text" / "Author" editing modes.
