Parenthesis () [] {} colors

  • Hi all, I have just installed PyDev on Helios and the first thing I do is customize the editor colors :)  My programming environment is green text on black background since ever, so I set it accordingly (ok, strings are yellow, keywords are white, and some other colors…) In PyDev, I cannot manage to change the color of the parenthesis; there is an entry on the Editor preferences called "(), , {}", but the color is applied on the preview and not in the editor. The text style instead is applied in the editor window (I can see it if I select the text, so to make the parenthesis appear).
    Am I missing something?

  • Ops, from the post this was not clear: I cannot see the parenthesis on black background, because they are always drawn in black, and this is not changed by the color setting

    I believe the problem is that you need to restart your editor for that change to take place (the current nightly build already fixes that, so, if you want you can get it - http://pydev.org/download.html - and see if it works for you without restarting the editor).

    Cheers,

  • YES! I just had to restart the editor! Thanks Fabio!
