In main.less, is there a way to be more specific with coloring code, something like the attached picture?  The idea that all tags in a code type are colored the same makes for a lot of painful searching.

What are you specifically tying to target in your PHP code theme? 

Can you paste an example of the PHP code you're using and what you want to change that you can't?

<!doctype html>

<html>

  <head>

  <meta charset="utf-8">

  <title>Some Document</title>

  </head>

  <body>

  <div>

  <form method="post" action="<?=$_SERVER['PHP_SELF']?>">

  <label>

  Name

  <br>

  <input type="text" name="name" style="color:#282828"/>

  </label>

  <button>

  Save

  </button>

  </form>

  </div>

  </body>

</html>

I would like to be able to have each one of these tags as a different color as well as the CSS on the inline styling, attributes, strings, etc... Kind of like this example.

As far as I know, that's not possible.  .cm-tag is universal -- effecting the code color of all such tags.

Learn how you can customize the colors of your code elements in Dreamweaver.

Below, I opened your code in Chrome with the Token Inspector tool.  As you can see, the .cm-tag highlights all the tags.

That is what I was afraid of   That is not a very user friendly feature. I have used your tool to customize the colors in DW2017 and main.less but without the ability to specify specific tags it is quite useless and makes navigating thousands of lines of code very difficult.

Thank you for your quick reply

I don't make the software.  I'm a product user just like you.

If code colors are a deal breaker for you, go back to the 2015 version.
