After Xamarin 4.02 upgrade, i've lost my custom syntax highlights and can't import them back because file format has changed.
Also occurs on Windows.

Comment 2 Mike Krüger 2013-03-19 18:12:09 UTC
btw. syntax highlighting or color schemes ?

Y format change due to vs.net compatibility.

It's now possible to import http://studiostyl.es/ styles. The problem is that the model differs a bit - therefore a conversion isn't possible.

Syntax Highlighting didn't change - there you only would do some color renamings - but I assume you mean color schemes.

Isn't it the same?

Under preferences --> Text Editor --> Syntax Highlighting, which is where the color schemes are shown, isn't it?

I'll go take a look at studiostyles anyway and find one that might suit my needs. Thanks

Syntax highlighting is a grammar definition.
Color schemes are a list of colors.

The syntax highlighting definitions use the color schemes. When changing the color schemes dramatically (like I did) the highlighting definitions need to be adjusted as well.
