I am using a dark scheme with a custom language / syntax highlighting. This results in a "find result" window which is very hard to read. Where does Notepad++ find results style get set, so I can adjust these settings (does it affect the regular code coloring scheme?)?


Settings > Style Configurator - Language: "search result" If it doesn't work for you, check the global override settings

  • @micke No. Do not close. You can answer your own question and then later accept the answer. – iglvzx Apr 25 '12 at 23:35

In Settings > Style Configurator go to the Language column, Search Result option and change the colors there.

If this doesn't work, check the global override settings.

  • If the style settings are not remembered when you close and run again Notepad++, execute it with the admin privileges (right click > Run as administrator), make the changes, then close the program. The settings will be properly saved; then you can run Notepad++ as usual. – Gras Double Mar 15 '14 at 1:58
