    Colorizing Active Script punctuation


      I've combed all the color settings I can find, and I can't get the Flex Builder 3 editor to colorize Action Script punctuation.  Punctuation remains black and I work on a black (or nearly black) background, so I need a solution.


      I've been through all the color types in in "Windows|Preferences|General|Editors|Text Editors", and all the colors in "Windows|Preferences|Flex|Editors|Syntax Coloring", and I can't find where to change A.S. punctuation (periods between class and member, semicolon at end of line, etc.) to anything but black.


      I've attached a screen shot to show the problem.


      Anyone know the magic button to push to get punctuation to colorize?

          Please set the background color to white so that punctuations will be visible. to change the background color goto window->preferences->genereal->texteditor->background color. Otherwise you can use the window->preferences->flex->Editors->syntax coloring-> default text to any color which is visible.


          Hope this helps

            RUSH-ME's answer isn't right, but I've found the solution in case anyone else is interested.


            There is no such thing as "Window|Preferences|Flex|Editors|Syntax Coloring|Default Text" as RUSH-ME suggested.


            However, the punctuation color is in ""Window|Preferences|General|Editors|Text Editors".  Select "Foreground Color" in the list, then be sure to UNCHECK the "System Default" box and change the color to whatever you want.
