I don't think you can change those "baked in" colors. You can however clone and rename one of those colors using the buttons in the toolbar. Then change whatever you want, and the new color will be there when you restart the program. You can assign a shortcut key to it also.

Hi Guys,

@Arnold, thanks for helping on this one.

Just one correction: In the latest build of the Editor, you should be able to modify the built in custom styles. Please try this using the Fill Colour option.

Regards,
Radi

Judging from his screenshot, he used the Fill Color option. I get the same result over here if I change/alter one of the default colors. It changes back when I close the program and re-start it. It happens even if I use the altered color before closing the program. Same thing in Windows XP or Windows 7, using Build 323.2. I must be missing something here.

Hi all,
Yes it is intended for the defaults to reset each time the application is closed, if you want a permanent one, as Arnold said earlier, youve got to make a new one for it to stay altered between sessions. You can also click the use current button for that custom setting to stay the default highlight between sessions!
