Customizing the Script Editor

You can customize the Script Editor by enabling or disabling line numbering, word wrap, and syntax highlighting, changing the text colors and fonts, and changing the background color of the editing area.

The following types of text can be customized:

To customize the Script Editor:

  1. In the Script Editor toolbar, do any of the following:
    1. To enable or disable syntax highlighting, click Color Coding .
    2. To show or hide line numbers, click Line Numbering .
    3. To enable or disable word wrapping, click Word Wrap .
  2. To change the background color or text styles in the Script Editor, do the following:

    Syntax highlighting must be enabled before changing the background color or text styles.

    1. In the Script Editor toolbar, click Set Style .

      The Options dialog box opens with the Application Font tab displayed.


      The fixed-width and proportional font settings on the Application Font tab apply to all application fonts, not only to the fonts in the Script Editor.

    2. In the Script Editor Settings area, select Background Color or the text style you want to change and click Change Color.
    3. In the Color dialog box, select a color from the Basic colors area or from the color palette. Or, if you know the Red, Green, and Blue (RGB) values of the color you want to use, enter them in the appropriate text boxes.
    4. Click OK.
  3. To make a text style bold or italic, select the appropriate style and do the following:
    1. To bold the selected style, select Bold.
    2. To italicize the selected style, select Italic.
  4. Click OK.

    If you want to revert to the background color and text styles used when ACL was first installed, click Factory at the bottom of the Options dialog box. Clicking Factory sets all options on all Options tabs to their default settings, not just the background color and text styles in the Script Editor.
