This is the weirdest thing I've been trying to figure out and clear out for the last hour, with no luck, and I've been through every imaginable setting in this damn application...
For some reason the PHP variables are colored #4b2226 (had to use color picker to figure out what that damn color is) and even if I switch between different custom themes that color stays the same across all of them, making me believe that the color is dictated by something in default PHPStorm settings somewhere rather than custom theme's settings.
See the screenshot:
obviously the $id and $status variables in that screenshots are impossible to read, and whatever is defined in the theme or color scheme so far (in the latest version, 2017.2.3) is not applying to those no matter what.
Any idea where else do I need to look to reset this and allow the theme specified colors to kick in?!
It's driving me bananas!
