1. Go to Tools -> Options -> Syntax Highlighting
2. Click New
3. Select Visual Studio as the base, give it a name and click OK
4. Select the new scheme and click OK.
5. Open a code file containing a class with a field being referenced:
class Foo
    private bool bar;

    public void DoStuff() {
       this.bar = true;

6. Reopen the syntax highlighting screen.
7. Edit the new scheme
8. Change the field highlighting color to black.
9. Click OK to the edit
10. Click OK to options.
Notice that the color of the field has not been updated, you need to close and reopen the file.
