Hi there,

I change some syntax and background colors in my Ubuntu Eclipse,
but now, I would like to apply these settings to my Windows Eclipse.

I click Export->Preferences, it only show "Keys Preferences".

so what can I do for this?

thanks!!

You can choose "Export all" instead of specific preferences. But then you
have to import all preferences, too.

As an alternative:
The workbench preferences (colors, fonts etc.) are stored in your
workspace in:
metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.core.runtime/.settings/org.ecl ipse.ui.workbench.prefs

You can compare the Ubuntu version of this file with the Windows one and
merge the color changes.
