Description

Element

You can specify different font and color options for each of these Keyword View elements. Select one of the following elements to see the current definitions and modify them:

  • Alternate Rows. The background color of every other row. The font and text color for the alternate rows is the same as the font and text color defined for the Default element.
  • Comment. The row and text of comment lines. Note that all of the available formatting options apply to entire comment rows, not to comments within a regular step row. For comments within a step row, only the specified Foreground color applies (all other settings are taken from the Alternate Rows, Default, or Selected Row settings, as appropriate).
  • Default. All rows and text in the Keyword View (except for the elements listed below).
  • Selected Row. The row and text currently selected (highlighted).
