UI questions/tweaks

So I've switched to RubyMine completely now, having started a rails job after a long time using Intellij with Java/Scala. Managed to convert one or two long-term Textmate users, too, but I have some (fairly minor) UI questions and tweaks that I'd love to get some feedback on.

First up, my friend (one of the converts) @ben_h has spent some time developing a nice dark theme, which I'm using, and which looks pretty great, but I can't figure out where to change the little diff X and >> icons: see here. At the moment, thin blue on dark grey is very hard to see, but I've searched the Color settings and can't see how to change them. Does anyone know?

As for sharing keymaps and themes, what's the best way. Distributing full settings.jar files seems overly heavy. Is there a nice way to version control some settings directory that we could then use git + github to move changes around?

Hello Glen,

First up, my friend (one of the converts) @ben_h has spent some time developing a nice dark theme, which I'm using, and which looks pretty great, but I can't figure out where to change the little diff X and >> icons: see here. At the moment, thin blue on dark grey is very hard to see, but I've searched the Color settings and can't see how to change them. Does anyone know?

RubyMine doesn't allow to customize gutter icons. I can advice just leave default "Color & Fonts | General | Gutter background" from your current Java "Look and Feel".

As for sharing keymaps and themes, what's the best way. Distributing full settings.jar files seems overly heavy. Is there a nice way to version control some settings directory that we could then use git + github to move changes around?
