Greetings,

I've used Adobe Dreamweaver CS5 for about a decade now, and I'm used to the color scheme used in the code editor for HTML and PHP tags/variables, etc.

I recently upgraded to Adobe Dreamweaver CC 2019 after a catastrophic computer failure, and no longer have CS5. Is there a way to change the CC 2019 code colors to those of CS5? Is there some kind of one-click preference option, or do I have to import a colors.xml type file? If so, where is that file available for CS5's default code colors?

Thanks

Kind regards

DW's code editor is based on Brackets now.  So the code themes are different.  You can customize the LESS file to a point but it won't be identical to what you had in legacy Creative Suite.   I found a Brackets code theme on Github I could live with.  And after 1 week of using it, I didn't look back.

See related topic.

Solution: White on Mint Green Code Color.

Are you looking for language specific coloring?

Here is a theme that offers different code colouring options for CSS, PHP, HTML and JS: mode-aware-code-theme.zip​ - Yes, its bright, I need something I can see as I'm getting on a bit and the eyes are not what they used to be

If you are on Windows copy the folder containing main.less and package.json to path something like: C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Dreamweaver CC 2019\en_US\Configuration\Brackets\extensions\user\

I think the path on Macs is something like:  Adobe\Dreamweaver CC 2019\en_US\Configuration\Brackets\extensions\user\

Restart Dreamweaver if already running ....
