Description malfunction84 2008-05-01 20:18:22 UTC
Settings defined in Tools > Options > Fonts & Colors > Diff are completely ignored by the Error Stripe and Diff 
Sidebar.  If I change my editor colors, I'd like to be able to change the inline diff colors as well.  This was pointed 
out in Issue# 104632 but never addressed.  If you want to have the option to have different colors in a side-by-side 
diff versus inline diff, can't you just have separate color options for them?

While we're at it, can we have a separate option for the Diff Sidebar background color?  I like to set the Code Folding 
Sidebar to have the same background as the line numbers, and I would set my Diff Sidebar to have the same background 
color too if I had the option.  Then the editable area of the text can all be a separate color.

I'm modifying my original request to just add new color options:
- Diff Window
  o Color of Added Text (already exists)
  o Color of Changed Text (already exists)
  o Color of Removed Text (already exists)
- Diff Sidebar
  + Color of Added Text
  + Color of Changed Text
  + Color of Removed Text
  + Background
- Diff Error Stripe
  + Color of Added Text
  + Color of Changed Text
  + Color of Removed Text

It would be also useful to have an opportunity to change background of pop-up windows which are displaying unchanged or
deleted text.

+1 this is really necessary. It's just confusing right now that no matter what you are trapped with the standard pale red/green/blue when you are able to change those colors in the actual Diff screen. When using a dark theme (Like Solarized Dark which I started using recently https://github.com/fentie/netbeans-colors-solarized ) the default colors look very tacky in the sidebar and are distracting to me.
