The dropdown menu shows either the name of the currently selected scheme, or 'No scheme'.

The contents of the dropdown is split into two sections: 'My Schemes' and 'Global Schemes'.

  • 'My Schemes' are the schemes defined by you, the current user, and they are not visible to anybody else.
  • 'Global Schemes' are a set of schemes defined by users with administrative permissions and they are shared with everyone.

You can access your own color scheme settings directly from the dropdown via the 'Manage My Colors' option.

Global color schemes settings are accessible from the 'Colors' menu item in 'Settings -> Add-ons'.


You can change the order of coloring rules by dragging and dropping:
