HowTo set Background color for the Outlining Margin

Background color for the Outline Margin

Hi Alex  ;)

is there an change you can add the option to set the color of the Outlining Margin?
It's because i always try to backspace deleting the OM-space too  ;D i.e. i "think" there
are some more blanks at BOL but this are often the OM-area only.
So i want to set an light grey background to the OM to distinguish this from the docu area.

Hi Stefan,

this is already possible. You can change background color for Outlining and Outlining (Highlighted) styles defined in default syntax schema from Transparent to something else.

Best regards,
Alex.

Ups, shameful.
I am an stupid person, i looked into "Color Schemes" only.

Now i add at "Color Schemes" an own item "Outlining Marker" to set an own color for that very issue,
then i went to "Syntax settings > syntax > Fonts and Colors"
and chose for "Outlining"  my new created "Color Scheme" item (see picture)

Works great thanks.
Thank you Alex.
