How to create a single color schemel in Kate?

I am not a programmer but use Kate extensively as my primary text editor in Linux Mint.

I would like to standardize the color scheme to be the same whatever I edit. On a rare occasion, I modify some bash or javascript code, but component color coding is not necessary for the task. Besides, their different color schemes are distracting and not helping under the circumstances. However, I find the color text to be pleasing, but not different from document to document. How can I implement this? I use the solarized dark theme and looked at my exported kateschema and katehicolor files, but I am lost. :o

You can customize the colours in the Profile and of course also make different profiles.


Currently running Kubuntu 20.04, Plasma 5.18.5, Frameworks 5.68.0, Qt 5.12.8, kernel 5.4.0-42
FWIW: it is always useful to state the exact Plasma version and distribution when asking questions in this forum, makes it easier for us to help ...

Some weeks ago, I installed Kate in both Windows 10 and Linux Mint, hoping to use a single text editor in both.

Spent the last weeks studying both versions and searched the Kate documentation but there is no information on how to configure Kate to use a single universal colour setting for everything and ignore the document type being edited. (which is wrong in any case, javascript is recognized as a Mediawiki Markup) .

In the context of my work, when I must make minor script modification, the color highlights are confusing for a non-programmer. Not only is Kate wrong in guessing the document being edited, but it's irrelevant.

Can you please help?
