Subclipse 1.6 changes highlight and comment colors in CFEclipse
I just installed Subclipse 1.6 in my Flex Builder as there was some conflict between it and my TortoiseSVN install. I like to do my commits and updates via Eclipse so I’m not switching out to my Explorer window for quick commits. If there is any conflict resolution needed, or I need a little more fine grained control, I switch out to Tortoise (as Subclipse doesn’t do as good a job currently).
After I upgraded from Subclipse 1.4 to 1.6, for some reason (I pretty sure it was Subclipse as I didn’t upgrade anything else), it decided that it didn’t like my comment color in CFEclipse or my highlight color and decided to randomly alter those colors to something else…a really weird, dark green for the comment background color and a much darker shade of blue for the text highlight color. To my mild case of OCD, that is just unacceptable Plus it’s just really difficult to read *any* text with a dark green background
If you want to switch these options back to their original colors, do the following:
Window -> Preferences -> CFEclipse -> Editor -> CFML Colours -> CFML Comment Background
I switched this one back to white from dark green.
Window -> Preferences -> CFEclipse -> Editor -> Appearance color options -> Selection background color
This one I had to create a new custom color and set it to Red 49, Green 106, and Blue 197 (this, I think, is the windows highlight color).
So far these are the only things I’ve found that it changes. I’ll post new updates if I find anything else.
