    There used to be a way to use the IDE to adjust syntax highlighting colors on the mac.   Was this dropped from the product?   Are we supposed to go into the themes and edit them by hand now?


    Thanks,

    Peter

      Hi Peter,


      Thank you for your question.


      Currently, this feature is part of the extended version of MonoDevelop and this is why the IDE has no access to it after moving to the latest MonoDevelop version.

      As a workaround, you can use the next source to customize syntax highlighting colors in the code editor:
      https://studiostyl.es/ - you can download a preferable color scheme here or create your own one; after this, please import a downloaded color scheme, please navigate to The Welkin Suite menu -> Preferences -> Text Editor ->Color Scheme, click the 'Add' button and load the file. After this please select the necessary color scheme in the list and click 'Ok'.


      I hope this would help.


      Regards,

      Kate

        Thank you for confirming my suspicions!   I'll try out the studioStyles.    Is it possible to upload the standard Welkinsuite themes to this tool and modify them?  If so were are the Welkinsuite themes stored?  

        I hope this functionality returns to the product.

        Thanks,

        Peter

          Hi Peter,


          You can use the next steps to modify the default color TWS scheme and use it:

          1. please open the link and download the necessary color scheme, the default one in TWS IDE for Mac is the 'DarkStyle' one;
          2. import this scheme to https://studiostyl.es/ and modify as you wish;
          3. download the modified scheme and import it to the IDE using the steps which I've described above.

          Hope this would help.


          if you would have any additional questions, please let us know and we will be happy to answer them.


          Have a nice day!


          Best Regards,

          Kate
