Autocomplete Background Color

How do I change the autocomplete background color in Enterprise Guide. When I type code and the autocomplete comes up it is hard to see what is selected.

There is an option SAS Color Format under Tools -> SAS Programs -> Editor Options -> AutoComplete

Thanks in Advance.

Re: Autocomplete Background Color

Hi -

The SAS Color Format option is used to indicate the color format that is used to specify colors in an autocomplete list.  If you select SAS color name, then the predefined SAS/GRAPH color names are used.  If you select RGB color code, then the RGB color-naming scheme is used.  This option does not affect the appearance of the autocomplete text.

There is currently no option to change the autocomplete background color.

Thanks,

Jennifer

Re: Autocomplete Background Color

The autocomplete color "highlight" can be difficult to see on systems that are accessed with remote desktop/Citrix, due to the client settings that define a smaller color depth.  You can sometimes change this in the "Display" settings for your remote desktop connection by increasing the color depth.  A smaller color depth can provide a slightly faster response/display experience because there is less display information being transmitted from the remote session, but this is a trade-off that results in less contrast across similar color schemes.
