Please Help me with this

So recently I have desired a retro terminal all neon green text on black. My dream was to have that on my laptop and program arduino with like that so i went through the theme.txt and default.xml changing the colors. So now i have the perfect colors!....and now whenever i compile and there is something wrong arduino FREAKS out and i can't close it and have to restart my computer. This has bugged me so much i cant use my IDE anymore and it really sucks please help.

That was the Theme.txt I only changed the Hex coloring
and by “Freak out” i mean it freezes and and clicking wont respond it also wont close the application. so a general freeze i guess. Thanks for any help you can produce.

default.xml below:

Are you sure that’s the full syntax.xml you posted? There seems to be part missing from what you posted but I don’t think that’s the cause of your problem because it just causes the IDE to not start for me.

Please try posting again but use code tags this time (</> button on the toolbar).

Yes that was my bad here full default.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>

Here's the problem:

Jasper1030: console.error.color = #ffffff - last change

Change that to:

console.error.color = #ffffff

If you want to add comments to that file you must use the # syntax:

# last change:
console.error.color = #ffffff

on default.xml or theme.txt?

oh sorry i see

YES THANK YOU!!!!

thank you for helping me. it has been solved.
