Color Schemes

Sublime Text uses color schemes to highlight source code and to define the colors of some items in the editing area: background, foreground, gutter, caret, selection…

Color schemes are fully customizable.

Let’s look at a Python file as Sublime Text highlights it using the default color scheme Monokai:


Selecting a Color Scheme

You can change the current color scheme by means of the Preferences → Color Scheme menu.

A common way of selecting a color scheme is by associating it to a type of file using file-type-specific settings. Select Preferences → Settings - Syntax Specific to open the corresponding settings file and set the color_scheme setting.

For more information about settings, see Settings.
