Color Scheme

This is an overview of how colors are selected. Each entry has a short description, and a few examples.

Tool Windows

  • Purple Project Information (Structure, Hierarchy, Favorites, Find, Java EE)
  • Yellow Project Status (Messages, Inspections, Dynamic Program Analysis)
  • Red Build Tools (Build, Gradle, Ant, Maven, Gulp, CMake)
  • Green Execution (Debug, Run, Profile, Cover, Python Console)
  • Blue External Services (Terminal, Git, Database, NuGet)

Note that the Project tool window is supposed to be purple, but it doesn't work for unknown reasons.


  • Green Addition
  • Red Deletion
  • Yellow Editing / Hints (Edit Source, Intention Bulb, Find In Selection)
  • Blue Movement / Layout (Filter, Sort, Split, Expand, Collapse, Refresh)
  • Purple Special (Save, Print, Download, Upload, Import, Export, Pin)
