Changing TeXShop source editor colour schemes

June 8, 2012

Some good stuff here on how to change TeXShop‘s colour schemes from terminal:



# solarized light color scheme

# background = solarized base3 = 253 246 227
defaults write TeXShop background_R 0.99
defaults write TeXShop background_G 0.96
defaults write TeXShop background_B 0.89

# commands = solarized red = 220  50  47
defaults write TeXShop commandred 0.86
defaults write TeXShop commandgreen 0.196
defaults write TeXShop commandblue 0.184

# comments = solarized base1 = 147 161 161
defaults write TeXShop commentred 0.58
defaults write TeXShop commentgreen 0.63
defaults write TeXShop commentblue 0.63

# foreground = solarized base00 = 101 123 131
defaults write TeXShop foreground_R 0.40
defaults write TeXShop foreground_G 0.48
defaults write TeXShop foreground_B 0.51

# index = solarized magenta = 211  54 130
defaults write TeXShop indexred 0.83
defaults write TeXShop indexgreen 0.21
defaults write TeXShop indexblue 0.51

# marker = solarized cyan = 42 161 152
defaults write TeXShop markerred 0.165
defaults write TeXShop markergreen 0.63
defaults write TeXShop markerblue 0.596

# insertionpoint = solarized base00 = 101 123 131
defaults write TeXShop insertionpoint_R 0.40
defaults write TeXShop insertionpoint_G 0.48
defaults write TeXShop insertionpoint_B 0.51


Note: On older versions of TeXShop this kind of thing was buggy, but now it works fine for me on Version 2.47 on Mac OS X 10.5.8.
