CodeRush Xpress Colors

I downloaded the free CodeRush Xpress version to try it. Is there a way to change the colors it uses for it's highlighting and line drawing? ie the matching braces. I have a dark color scheme and my monitor I have VS on must suck because I can't see the lines. Yet on the LCD I can. Is there a way to change the colors?

I use CodeRush Xpress 9.2. It is possible to configure some colors used for highlighting in the Options menu of CodeRush Xpress. You can find the menu in Visual Studio under DevExpress ->Options. Go to the Painting sub-item of the Editor item to control some of the colors used (among them Navigation Fields, Navigation Links and Text fields).

If the DevExpress menu doesn't appear in your Visual Studio installation, just press Alt+Ctrl+Shift+O to directly go to DevExpress Options. Or, if you permanently want the DevExpress menu entry in Visual Studio, set the following registry key and restart it:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Developer Express\CodeRush for VS\9.2]
    "HideMenu"=dword:00000000

This works at least with Visual Studio 2005 and 2008.
