I have imported a .EPF Eclipse preferences file from here via
File > Import > General > Preferences. The preferences file changes the colorization for the TeXlipse editor.
How do I remove/reverse the changes that this .EPF import has made?
You can reverse these theme color changes in one of two ways:
Window -> Preferences. In the popup that is displayed, expand the menu for the language you're interested in (in this example, it will be Java). Navigate to
Java -> Editor -> Syntax Coloring. Click the
Restore Defaultsbutton. Click the
Your preferences are stored in a directory in the workspace. Its relative path is
.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.core.runtime/.settings. If you delete everything in this directory and restart Eclipse, all settings will be reverted to their default values. (Note: all settings, not just necessarily the ones you're interested in.) Alternatively, you can try deleting specific
.prefs files in an attempt to isolate the specific preferences to reset (for example,
org.eclipse.ui.ide.prefs seem promising, but I haven't tested this).
Also, since these preferences are workspace-specific, you can simply create a new workspace and move your existing projects to it.
I didn't manage to directly reverse the effects of the import but to change the colorization I downloaded the Eclipse Colorer plugin which worked a treat.
