Need more color flexibility

I've been a devoted Emacs user for a long time and I'm thinking about moving to IntelliJ.

When trying to configure the IntelliJ editor to use my old Emacs color scheme, I ran into a few problems. Specifically, I couldn't find a way to change the color of class and method names within code. For instance, in the following method declaration:

public String getTitle(SomeClass foo);

I would want to set "String" and "SomeClass" to be a particular color and "getTitle" to be another.

Is there any way to do this?

Thanks.

Scott

I'm using version 3.0.5 build #706 and I have neither of these two options. Is this in a later build or part of a plugin?
