Hello,

I am running eclipse from linux mint and cinnamon. Today, I was going through all the color settings and changing them to how I liked. However, I had a problem with the color of elements called "External SDK Calls". One example is "endl". I could change the color of the words, but these words get highlighted in a funny way for no reason that I can find. The picture below shows my problem. Thanks.

There is a system wide setting for highlighted background which may work in:
Windows --> Preferences --> Editors --> Text Editors

But the Dark Theme tends to override some of these in a haphazard way.

I set mine to black on gray.

Thanks for the reply. However, I think I found that "endl" was simply highlighted because it was the last word that I selected. If I select a different keyword, all similar ones will be highlighted in the same way. So basically, it was simply me being stupid. Now I'm using the dark theme rather than a custom one, which is better.
