Hi,

putting the mouse over a function will show a overlay window, (press F2 to focus)

this has a black background and is unreadable.
on Linux no problem because I know how to change overlay window colors ,

but I am on windows now and the window is unreadable, just black.
how can I change this?

thanks for the help

I think it is Preferences->General->Text editors: Selection background color

no, unfortunately this is not the answer.
I mean the overlay window which shows when you put the mouse over a function call.
the text in this window is unreadable because black text on black background.

thanks for the link,
I do not understand why I have the Problem even if it is marked as solved, and it is also strange that no one else has this problem
I can also not remember that I had this problem on w Windows7 ,but I know that it is always on KDE.

however, I am on windows 8.1 , and the mentioned tooltip settings do not exist or they are somewhere hidden.

is there not a css that I could customize to fix this?

Just a guess, did you check these options?

Window -> Preferences -> C/C++ -> Editor -> Parameter hint Background
or
Window -> Preferences -> General -> Appearance -> Colors and Fonts -> Content Assist background color
