Tab highlighting

Is there a way of increasing the contrast between the current file tab and the other tabs in the main view pane? With no version control it isn't too bad spotting the open tab, but when they are coloured to indicate version control state, the difference between the tab belonging to the current file and other tabs, is not easy to spot.

Also is there a way to indicate of the tabs when files have changes that have not been saved?

"Also is there a way to indicate of the tabs when files have changes that have not been saved?"

Found the solution to that. Its in Setting > Editor > Editor Tabs > 'Mark modified tabs with asterix'. Obvious in hindsight.

Yes. I am feeling a fool for not finding the unsaved change asterix setting before posting. :8}

However, looking through the online help only increased my conclusion that there is not an obvious way to alter the current tab appearance, as I seem to be repeating a previous post:
