Question - IDE Code editor cheat sheet to change colour/font to same as GM1?

The colours and font in the code editor appear much more readable to me in GM1 over GM2.

Does anybody have a cheat sheet of sort so I can change all the colours/font so that it's the same as GM1?

I could do the colours by eye I guess but I read these settings are stored in a project file so it would be good if there was a file somebody has made that I can just drop into my project folder.

Thanks.

I thought that way at first, but I quickly got used to the new color scheme after a few hours.

Still, it'd be nice if there was an easy way to switch color preferences as a collection. I would like for that to be supported. Although, for sake of familiarity when sharing screen shots of my code with other people, I don't know that I'd change mine from the standard colors.

The code editor is not a standalone app and setting a syntax theme that is wildly different from the program's theme is not going to be aesthetically pleasing (in my opinion)... Though I agree that hand-picking a few that do look good could be nice, and also that we need import/export of code editor colors. File a suggestion for this... so no one forgets

Yeah, not gonna add in multiple ones to select from, not sure why you'd ever need that. But an import/export is possible....one day.
