Dialog text color

Since PHPStorm 8 my dialog text color has been light grey on white background.  I can't seem to find a setting that affects this.  It shows this way in commit boxes, client dialogs and a few others.  Can someone point me to the setting? I've tried changing my color scheme too that that didn't help.

Hi there,

TBH -- no real clue. But overall it looks like something stuck in either theme or color scheme.

Therefore I suggest to change both GUI Theme and Editor Color Scheme to Darcula first (as it is dark one and completely different to light themes from your screenshot), restart IDE and then change back to the Default entries (e.g. Windows/IntelliJ GUI Theme on Windows; Default color scheme) and see if this will help. If does -- try switching back to your theme/scheme (the ones that you had originally).

  • GIU Theme -- "Settings (Preferences on Mac) | Appearance & Behavior | Appearance"
  • Editor Color Scheme -- "Settings (Preferences on Mac) | Editor | Color & Fonts"

Looks similar to https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-131109. What editor color scheme do you use? Such problems usually occur when using color
schemes with light foreground
