Terminal Colors

Love the idea of a built-in terminal in Idea, but unfortunately I can't see the text. With my color scheme I see white text on a white background. If I use the mouse, I can select the text and see it. I can't find any color options related to the terminal colors and some guesses haven't yielded any results. What are the names of the colors I need to change to get this work?

Hi, the corresponding settings are Settings | Editor | Colors and Fonts | Console Colors

What do you have there?

That was my first thought: changing the background color in the console to black. That didn't work. Neither did any of the other colors in Console. Note: I restarted Idea after each change. On a whim I just changed my theme to Darcula which made the console legible. Then I changed it back to Alloy and now the console background color works. Not sure what happened there. Some setting was corrupt perhaps (I've imported my settings across at least 6 versions of Idea). Anyway, thanks for the help.
