Dark theme doxygened function/method name colour

I've got a custom dark theme based off zenburn which is working nicely accept functions that detect a doxygen style documentation comment are using some colour I can't seem to find where to override. Its defaulting to the Kdevelop normal colour scheme which on a dark background is near un-readable. Does anyone know how to set this colour? It must be possible because the other colour schemes like Obsidian Coast are changing it.

Thanks

Have you checked all possible Colour sets in System Settings to ensure the right colours are set?

Yep but I can't figure out which colour there (if any) would affect it. Plus I am not using a dark theme for my system theme (oxygen cold). Just for the text editor. I changed the schema in editor settings. Your suggestion made me think to try an import the kate schema into the system schema which imported fine but nothing I changed there seemed to affect what was displayed in Kdevelop's text area.

Oh, in that case it could be a bug in the text editor - which is relying on the internal colour scheme for some colours, but the system wide colour scheme for others.

So how is obsidian coast dealing with this? Is it because it references the colours of obsidian in system settings? If so, is that something that can be set in a kate schema? E.g. use-system-schema=obsidian

Thanks

Unfortunately I do not know what Obsidian is doing that makes it work if you have tried all possible colour options in both Kate and System Settings.

FYI: The link colour looks like the colour its being set to (and makes sense) but changing makes no difference.

Unfortunately I am out of ideas here. May I suggest asking about this on the KDE Artists mailing list: [email protected].

My guess would be that there may be further types of colours which are not changeable through the System Settings interface.

Sorry for the slow reply. I've uploaded a couple screenshots to:

I included Obsidian for comparison. From what I can tell Zenburn seems to use the same function name colour as the "Normal" schema in Kdevelop.

that is... odd... you should open a bug on bugs.kde.org and explain me how to reproduce this issue

what I notice: the icon border / line number border is bright with your scheme, while dark with obsidian coast - might be related?

The line/icon bar can have its colours set with: "Color Icon Bar", "Color Line Number", which I'd done to make it use the lighter colour there. Just in case the editor was assuming it was a light theme because of that I just tested with the icon bar set to black with white text but it had no affect on the function names.

I'll open up a bug report if I can't figure it out soon.

Thanks for help.
