3.7.1 Choosing colors

The Irie Pascal IDE allows you to select the background and text colors used when displaying text in the editor and message windows. To select colors choose Preferences... from the Edit menu. This will take you to the Text Preferences page of the User Preferences dialog box.

The IDE will remember your color selections and automatically use those colors whenever it displays text. If you are not the only person using Irie Pascal on a particular computer, then in order for the IDE to remember your color selections, you must log on to Windows using your own user id. If you log on to Windows with someone else's user id or a shared user id then the IDE will use the color selections of the last person to log on the Windows with that user id.

NOTE: The IDE stores color selections in the registry under the following key:

\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Irie Tools\Irie Pascal\Settings\colors.
