Console colors

Hello again,

Ok... I installed the MyEclipseIDE plug-in within Eclipse 3.1 on OS X Tiger, and it rocks! I was fooling around with the syntax colors of the JSP, HTML, CSS, and XML editors, and what I did was make the background color black and the foreground white. Now, everything works, but the problem is, the console's background is white, and the foreground is white!

Therefore, I can not see any output in the console!

I looked all over the preferences and I know that I am overlooking something... Is there a way to possibly change the console's colors? And if so, where can I? I know there must be a way, because, yesterday (before I installed the MyEclipseIDE plug-in and started playing around with the default colors) the console's background was white and foreground was black.

Any tips, suggestions, and comments, are greatly appreciated and needed!

Thanks again,

I found the solution! Its under Window -> Preferences -> Run / Debug -> Console.

I tried out IntelliJ IDEA, at work, today, and I must say that while its a whole of a lot faster, I still love Eclipse! The MyEclipseIDE plug-in does rock, indeed!

Long live Eclipse!

Kindest,
