Color preferences window

In order to modify a color, you simply need to click on the respective rectangle and select a new color in the OS-specific color choose dialog that will pop up.

  • If the colors in the menu happen to be totally diverged you may restore the original standard color set by pressing the "Reset" button (versions ≥ 3.28-13):
