I'm using the latest version of Eclipse on Mac 10.6.3. Does anyone know how to invert the color scheme -- so that I have a black background with white lettering? I want to reduce eye strain. Thanks, - Dave
Go to Window > Preferences, and then choose General > Editors > Text Editor. At the bottom of that dialog you'll see a section titled "Appearance color options" where you can select "Background color" from the list and then uncheck "System default" and choose a color from the color picker above.
Of course there are other color preferences too, so if you enter "color" into the filter field in the top right corner of the Preferences dialog you'll see all the preference pages that deal with color.
If you still have trouble getting Eclipse to use an alternate color, try changing you OS's system colors since they are often used by default in Eclipse.
