Description Dave Wolfe 2013-02-28 20:00:37 UTC
When editing a color scheme, some properties are not displayed and can only be changed by exporting an xml file.  For example, all the keyword.semantic.*.declaration properties can only be edited in the xml file.

The new color scheme engine is much better in this area. The colors can no longer be "forgotten" because they're registered at a central location.

The xml color schemes were designed as 'ad hoc' schemes that were very dynamic - but that made it harder do maintain an editor for it.

The color scheme editor isn't very good and may be improved.
