#481 Background color of editor (rsyntaxextarea)


Love the product, the only issue I have is when I choose a nice dark theme like "Substance" with twilight skin... I would love to change the background of the text editor to something other than white. White is hard on the eyes after awhile, would love to make it grey or some other darker color. The only other color issue is in the status window when I have chosen (in my case green in the alias). Examples are attached.

The grey text editor background is much easier on the eyes!

Thanks again for a great product!

    I would also like to see this feature in SQuirreL because it is currently impossible to make the SQL editor pane fit with the rest of the app if a dark theme is selected.

    I use SQuirreL a lot and switching to a dark theme with it is not viable at the moment.

    I would consider this closed... I made a change to make the background color match the whitespace background, and sent my code Gerd Wagner. Gerd later incorporated the change into the project. All is well!

    Thank you Gerd!
