My Editor Color….

Someone, somewhere in my many travels over the last few months loved my Visual Studio editor background color.

I use Tools/Options/Fonts and colors to reset the background color of my editor. This does three things for me:

– It’s less glaring for the audience in presentations

– It differentiates my editor window from my tools windows

– It makes me happy

Anyway, I promised someone somewhere I’d post the color spec – it’s normal colors (because there are too many to change with that blasted editor) on a background of RGB 255, 255, 221. It’s a color I would call “manila” for the old folders.

I might lighten it slightly if I only worked on monitors, but this is nice on projectors as well.
