Syntax highlighting color collisions [message #97386] Fri, 15 May 2009 12:29

I use completely different editor color styles for Java and PHP. With Java
I want to use a *dark blue* background with bright text. With PHP I prefer
to go with the default coloring used on the PHP manual web pages, that is
with a white background and primary foreground (text) color being *dark

I changed the general background color to my beloved dark blue in Java via

Window -> Preferences, General -> Editors -> Text Editors

plus the current hightlight background and others. I then set the PHP
syntax highlighting normal/primary text color via

Window -> Preferences, PHP -> Editor -> Syntax Coloring

to dark blue.

In the PHP syntax coloring preview Window the coloring is shown assuming a
white background. This is wrong. It should show the current (global)
background color.

Now my real problem is that I have a dark blue global(!) editor background
plus the standard PHP coloring with dark blue text... yuck, can't see

I really need these (global) text editor background etc. settings on a
*per-perspective* basis! A global setting isn't sufficient if the syntax
coloring is set by perspective.

Is there any way to fix/workaround this? Maybe a PDT setting that
overrides the current globals? I believe a change in Eclipse would take
some time to be implemented..... ?



PS: Until this is fixed I'll probably have to resort to using two Eclipse
Ganymede installations... *sigh*
