Recently I switched from one text editor where I thought the colors were okay (Gedit) to another text editor where I think the colors are amazing (Sublime Text). Then I used the Blender text editor to write some Python for the first time in a while, and realized the colors are pretty horrible.
Whether you think the colors are actually bad or not, there are still two issues:
- There is actually very little contrast in the color scheme which makes it harder to read
- It doesn’t fit in with the rest of the UI. The color scheme hasn’t changed since 2.4x (Possibly earlier)
I think the colors are bad however. They give a sort of murky feel, and it’s the only place in the interface where most of those colors are used. The color scheme of 2.5+ is neutral backgrounds with monochrome text and colorful highlights, but this clearly isn’t true for the text editor.
I would like to hear what you think, and if you agree with me that it should be changed, I’d like to see your suggestions for new color schemes.
