Sorry to resurrect an old post but I basically have the same question. I recently installed VisualGDB build 3595 into VS2017 and opened a C++ project. The default color for many kinds of text (such as: C++ member function) was changed from black to a sort of maroon color (red 128, green 0, black 0). It’s listed as the “default” on this screen: https://imgur.com/a/fPlX7oF My question is what is causing the default color to change, and how can I revert the colors to the way they were? I didn’t understand the advice to export/import settings, especially since they’ve already been changed now and I have no way to go back.
Normally, VisualGDB would try to inherit the regular C/C++ colors, however depending on the VS version and other installed plugins, this may not always work perfectly. The easiest way would be to simply change the color from “default” to anything you prefer via the Tools->Options window.
