Hello Markus,

Is it possible to change the color of the active tab in the intellij
idea?


The color of the active tab is determined by the look&feel you are using.
There is no way to change it directly.

I changed the look and feel and now I am happy :)

In the darcula theme, with 20 tabs open, it's almost impossible to tell which one is the active tab without hunting for it by name.  So how do we change/modify the look and feel of Darcula?  How can I customize it to have a tab background that's MUCH lighter than all the others, so I can actually see it?

I agree completely, in Dracula theme its impossible to tell which tab is currently selected.

 

Can you please provide clear instructions for setting the current active tab's color?
