How to change the color of sort column ?

Post by hamigo » 2012 Mar 02, 20:39

in option ,window -- view pain tab.
although I checked  "column highlight" ,
on my setting ,  the color of sort column is too pale.
I cannot distinguish with the column and white pane very much.

I want to change sort column color to more dark color.
Please teach me  how to change.

While column highlight shading is not a user controllable option, the contrast can be significantly improved by specifying a somewhat darker background, which results in the highlight shading being a more contrasting, but lighter, color.
(use the Advanced settings editor, and experiment to find a color combination you like)
I describe the color scheme I use in this post.  The scheme has good column highlighting (not discussed in the post), as well as highly recognizable backgrounds to distinguish active vs. inactive and filtered panes from each other.
