Can anyone tell me if and how to edit the color scheme of the Interface LW 8?
For some reason mine looks awful mauveishy brown grey and blue.

Find this file on your system:


Load it into a text editor and put these lines in the file somewhere:

ToolButtonColor 100 110 125
StateButtonColor 100 110 125
ActionButtonColor 100 110 125
DialogButtonColor 100 110 125
DragButtonColor 100 110 125
BackgroundColor 90 90 105
InfoAreaColor 90 90 105
InfoAreaTextColor 0 0 0

Play with the XXX XXX XXX (RGB) numbers (range from 0 - 255) to change the colours.

LW won't allow some colour combinations. The numbers on the one above will make LW look like this:

Thanks Matt. I'll give it a try. I don't know why the colors would be so wacked out on my newly ugraded LW 8. Man you would not believe how bad it looks. This looks like it will do the trick.
Thanks again.
