Is there a setting for overriding the IDE custom font color?

I found where to overide the font and size of the DataGrip IDE (i.e. menu and data source names), but not the font color. I really like the color theme I found, with the exception of the main IDE font color which is a little too dark. I want to override the scheme font color, but I can't seem to find a setting for it. Is there a way of overriding the color, similar to the font and size override under File > Settings > Appearance & Behavior > Appearance > 'Use custom font:'?


Please open `Settings | Editor | Color Scheme | General`, and you could configure the default font color in `Text | Default text`.

Hi Lejia. I tried changing this, but it didn't affect the text colors I was hoping to change. Under Database explorer, the data source names are very dim, along with the menu names in the top toolbar, and the console names in the services window. They look like different font colors, but I can't seem to find a way of altering them within the UI, other than changing the entire theme. The examples provided when changing the Editor color scheme seems to apply to the console windows, not the broader UI.


@Curtis Allen I see. You are right here. The `Text | Default text` can only change the text color in the editor/console window.

Other colors like the font color in the Database Explorer are configured by different attributes like `Tree.foreground`, `Label.foreground` which can only be customized in the theme plugin.

What theme plugin do you use? If that theme plugin's source code is open-source, you could change the font color that you don't like, and repack it to create a new theme. See here for details:
