    I'm using Fiddler in a dark theme. But there are a few colors I wasn't able to change.

     - Color of some blue entries (not sure what differentiates them)
     - Color of hex editor text in request
     - Color of hex editor text in response

    Image attached. Please tell me how to customize these colors.

    Hi, Ram--

    Unfortunately, these colors are not presently customizable.

    Sessions in the WebSessions list are blue when they have a HTML response content-type.

    Thanks Eric.

    I hope you'll take the time to go over the interface and make all colors customizable. (No need for a settings dialog, using QuickExec to change them is good enough, as long as there's a list of all color names somewhere.) The colors as they are make my eyes hurt when using Fiddler.


    Thanks,
    Ram.

    Here's to hoping for a Fiddler "Dark Theme" in the near future! That'd be a great improvement to such a useful tool. Our eyes would thank you :)!

    A general theming system is unlikely to appear but the next version under development (4.6.0.4) does offer more configurability of colors that might be limiting you today.


    // Add "fiddler.inspectors.RequestHexView.HeaderColor" and "fiddler.inspectors.ResponseHexView.HeaderColor"
    // Add "fiddler.ui.Colors.IsHTML" "fiddler.ui.Colors.IsScript" "fiddler.ui.Colors.IsAuth" "fiddler.ui.Colors.LoadedFromSAZ"
