Color scheme lost after update Follow
I have updated to 2017.2 RC from previous build and I found my color scheme setings are lost. There is no scheme name in dropdown, interface rolled back from dark to light, but some tabs looking strange with dark background.
How can I import my color scheme from prev installation? I have no previous build and can't download it from the site.

What version have you upgraded from?
Just in case, here are the previous releases: https://confluence.jetbrains.com/display/PhpStorm/Previous+PhpStorm+Releases
It was previous EAP. I don't remember version, sorry. I am updated via "check for updates" dialog.
Unforunatelly, releases page don't has EAP versions.
Maybe you have been using some third party plugin for a scheme? Material Theme UI, for instance?
As currently we don't have similar requests.
If you haven't, please try to find the relevant scheme in the config folder, is it still there?
No, I don't use plugins for a scheme.
Color scheme file exists in ~/Library/Preferences/PhpStorm2017.2/colors/ but color scheme dialog has only standard items to choose. I managed to import it via "Import Scheme".
But still, also lost tab location setting, font settings, sidebars, navbars, ... In general looks like imported only small part of my settings.
Do you use Settings Repository by any chance?
I tried it out of curiosity. But I found it useless for me and deleted repository folder and path settings.

Maybe that's when you've lost the settings? When you create Settings Repository, newly set configuration is only written to its catalogue, thus when you delete it, you lose everything after the moment when you start using it.
I didn't make any changes in my settings after enabled Settings Repository. I enabled it, looking to target directory and disabled (clear path to repository from the input because I didn't find any other way to stop using repo). May be it was wrong way. But old settings still exists. At least I restored color scheme from icls file. The question is - why they were not imported after update and how I can restore them?
Were you using any custom configurations/settings? E.g. changing paths in idea.properties via Help | Edit Custom Properties? Or changing contents of *.vmoptions files?
You can use Help > Collect & Show logs in ... and then upload resulting archive somewhere (our FTP for example) for us to inspect.
yes, I have changes in both of them.
I would prefer to send collected logs via email or any other ways but directly without worldwide access.
FTP "list" function is accessible only for JetBrains employees.
Else you can send it to email@example.com
Probably I have the same issue :
I used hight contrast color scheme. And didn't touched any configs. It happened right after update. My terminal became white and files tabs as well.
Do I understand it correctly that you were using a default "High Contrast" scheme without any personal changes?
Does it work fine if you select any other scheme and then turn "High Contrast" back?
If I try to change color schema to any other - nothing is changed.
And I've never had any personal changes. Only for code formatting.
Just to confirm, did you try changing the whole IDE theme (Appearance & Behavior | Appearance) or just an editor color scheme (Editor | Color Scheme)?
Does it just stuck in a current color scheme and nothing is changed at all when you select, for instance, "Darcula"?
Thanks a bunch. Yeah it fixed the issue. Before your answer I tried in Editor | Color Scheme and it didn't work. Now I tried in Appearance & Behavior | Appearance and it works as desired.
