Hi all,

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

Thanks

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?

Hello Markus,

idea?


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