Dark Background Color in Dreamweaver Code View

In Dreamweaver, you can manually change the Code Coloring colors that are displayed in Code View in the Code Coloring Category of the Preferences dialog.

This is easy when you just want to tweak a few colors, but changing your entire coloring scheme to a dark background requires changing many different settings, which can be a lot of work.

Fortunately, I found the Dark Code Colorization for Dreamweaver extension written by Tom Sramek which does the work for you. Thank you for sharing, Tom.

  • I am looking for a transparent background code to hinder the background image so I can compose a text field.

    Help please.

  • Thansk for this. But when I highlight the code on a Mac the text is unreadable with the highlight color.

    I wish Adobe would add the ability to quickly switch between color themes like Textmate has. It doesn’t seem like this would be a very hard feature to implement.

    @RK Currently, the Code View selection colors are defined by the OS, so you will have to edit those settings outside of DW. Thank you for the Feature Request!

    • hi Randy, I have the same request, because it’s a bit difficult to read selected text, do you have any idea of changing that from the OS? I’m using mountain lion and CS6. Thank you! really nice theme!

        I have Mac 10.6 (Snow Leopard?), so here’s how you change it there, go to System Preferences and in the Personal section choose Appearance, then change the Highlight color setting.
