This is in Tools|Options, the Editor Format tab.

I do not see a Restore Defaults, so you will have to change it to what you want it to be.

No. These settings are kept in the registry (I believe), making them machine specific.

With Visual Studio .NET this might not be too hard, but it would be quite a challenge in Visual Studio 6.

thanks for you reply brian!!


but it can be done..look this I have got this be another forum..

--------------
 If you are referring to the Visual Basic IDE Code Editor Colors. They are saved in your Registry at the key of:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VBA\Microsoft Visual Basic

You can export that branch out to a .REG file you can save to run again later.
I did exactly that and posted 4 color themes at: http://vcreations.net/vbcolor.asp

Interesting.

I looked at that page (didn't download the file).

How do you export a branch to a .REG file? do you have to use RegEdit, or can it be done from within VB.

Same question for the import.

(If it takes regedit, many cannot do it do to access restrictions.)
