Reopening Eclipse reverts editor colours [message #1424005] Mon, 15 September 2014 10:09 Go to next message

Not sure where this should go - I'm running Eclipse Kepler Release 2 on Mavericks with Aptana Studio 3.6.

When I open Eclipse I can change the colour settings for PyDev via the Preferences -> General -> Editors -> Text Editors pane. I set background to black (unticking 'System Default') and a few other colour settings.

I then have lovely black backgrounds for programming with. When I close Eclipse and reopen it all of these preferences revert to their system defaults, including reticking the 'System Default' tick boxes. Is there a way to retain these?

As an aside, Aptana seems to override these settings for HTML / CSS / JS editors and these remain how I set them (Monokai) before any restart. It's just PyDev that refuses to retain its colour settings.

Does anyone know how I might resolve this?

Many thanks for your attention,

Hi Will,

Sorry I don't have an answer for this, just running into the same annoyance. It seems to be a problem related to the Aptana Studio plugin as I am experiencing the same reversion of preferences the the system defaults on startup with Mars (and Aptana 3.6).

The only (poor) "work around" I have is to export my preferences once I have set them up the way I want them and then import them at the start of each session. Pretty annoying though.
