Color Scheme for embedded python window

Mar 18, 2011 at 2:08 PM

I am trying to find out how to change the color scheme for the embedded python window. For some reason, the "result" when an expression is evaluated is black text, and I have a black background as well. I tried changing a couple settings in Visual Studio specific to Python, but they didn't seem to make a difference.

There's a set of colors defined for the interactive window - interactive black is what's used by default for output.  You can change that to white and you should be able to see the output.  You can tweak the other colors appropriately to make sure they are properly visible for your color scheme as well.
