do you mean default? I don't have any nor could I find any with a quick 
search called basic.. If it is a special theme perhaps you could point me in 
the right direction to test it out.

umm.. clueless here.. if it were my changes I would expect all areas where 
the "Default color" was checked for background color to be the same.. it is 
for me on every theme I have tried.

Including Default.. which as you say(assuming we are talking the same 
theme), is white..  And that is what I get..

Perhaps there is something wrong with the SynEdit Color implementation where 
it doesn't always update?
Sorry I can't be any help but  like I say, every theme I have tried works... 
unless it is something I changed on my system that hasn't made it to CVS.. 
always a possibility that it is some odd behaviour which was fixed by 
something I changed since then. I guess we can find out with the next 

The only oddities I have noticed with default is the system font color, and 
oddly enough.. custom drawn checkbox's.(I am attempting to finish up 
DrawFrameControl Check support.. next up tri-state!)

I think this is what I meant... AKA in Editor Color Options.
