Allow changing font settings and colors of the console

Jan 29, 2011 at 6:27 PM

Per Fowler's constant request (including threats and harassment), I'm considering adding an entry in the Fonts and Colors option page to allow users to change the font settings and colors of text in the console (for vNext of course.)

What do people think about it? Do you think it's a useful feature? Do you often change text editor colors at all? Is it worth the effort?

It turns out that there is already a bug logged for this:

Feel free to vote for the issue if you like to see it added to NuGet.

I like the idea. It's nice to get some fit and finish work in.

Turns out this is easier that I thought. I've got it working on my local repo. It's minimal change, and have low impact. So I think we should get it in for 1.1. Agreed?

Sounds good to me if nobody else objects. J
