Full control over TeXworks colours

Postby Kensington » Tue Jan 30, 2018 1:55 pm

Hello all,

I've been looking into this for awhile but I haven't yet found a solution on google.
I want to customise the editor colours on TeXwoks. I found the following post (Customise Editor Colours), but the post only shows you how to change the colour of the background and the main text. What I'm specifically looking to do is change the colour of functions like "\begin{document}", "\usepackage{verbatim}","\renewcommand", and comments.

If anyone can point me in the right direction of how to do this, or at least where to find the information that will help me do it, I would appreciate it. :D

Ok. It's been a month. I feel it's safe to assume the LaTeX community is dead. But at least I can learn from this experience. When someone asks me for help I can just ignore them.

Thank you for your "time".

There are indeed only a very limited amount of helpers around, but the community is not dead.

Personally, I don't use texworks, so the only answer I could have given would have been: sorry, but I don't know.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

"Thank you" for your sarcastic comment with even quotation marks. ;-)
That was of cause a joke.

Seriously, it can happen that nobody knew an answer right away. And then it may get under the radar, since I usually read the latest active topics. It would help to add another post to the thread, so it's bumped up and we notice that it's still an open issue.

Click on "Active topics" to see that there's still live here. Many helpers from this forum now only use a certain commercial site where they earn points and badges and such glory. :-) It got a bit quiet here, from time to time, but I read here several times a day and try to help. Sometimes I may miss a question. I guess in your case I would have at least recommended to write to the TeXworks mailing list or to the developers.
