Editor display question

TOAD 10.6

Hello,

Is it possible to adjust the colors used on the “Parameter Hints”
that appears when the option is enabled and an opening parans is used? I have
TOAD set with a black editor background and have adjusted nearly all facets of
the display to match what I am comfortable with, but an option that eludes me is
the ability to change the backround and/or font color of the parameter hints. I
have provided a link to an image that helps indicate my issue:

any help and/or advice would be appreciated!

Please send your LexLib.lxl file to me offline. There is no way for you to
change that text color within Toad. You need to change the value of your window
text in Windows which you’ll probably not want to mess with as it will affect
all applications. I can make it so the popups choose a good contrasting color
automatically.

Go to View|Options|General and look at the “Application data directory” group
box. Navigate to that location in Windows Explorer and you’ll find the
LexLib.lxl file. This file contains all of your Editor syntax highlighting
options.
