I love PN2, but the scheme color configuration is really cumbersome. Most of the time I’m editing C/C++ code, so it’s the one I’ve got congfigured the way I like it — unfortunately, when I need to edit something else, the colors are completely screwed (naturally).

Is there any way to have all of the other styles “inherit” the colors from one style? For instance, most languages have comments, numbers, strings, characters, etc. and it’s a real pain to go through each language and set the color every single time.

Like a default style that you could create and then optionally specify it to override other styles in areas where it is different. That would be a nice implementation.

The underlying color system does support this, I have just got to implement the UI for it.

Thanks for the attention to the request. I hope you consider doing it soon!

Actually, if you say the underlying system does support it — could you give instructions on how to manually edit the XML files to do this?

Thanks!

Have a look at the blog post here: http://untidy.net/blog/2006/09/07/pimp-my-pn/

The master.scheme file defines the key colours used throughout and usersettings.xml provides further customisations (the ones done in the UI at present). More of the schemes need to be updated to use those key colours but it kinda works.
