Sometimes, it's the little things

Visual Studio 2013 editor highlights the current line by changing the background color of the current line.

By default, it's this hideously impossible to see also-black that looks like crud on my LED screen. Also, the fact that I'm using the dark theme means that also-black doesn't help when the highlight value is a grey value of 80% black.

So I changed it from the default to Navy for Active, and Olive to Inactive.

It's found in the Visual Studio 2013 menu at

  • Tools\Options\Environment\Fonts and Colors\

The ones to edit are

  • Highlight Current Line (Active)
  • Highlight Current Line (Inactive)
