Is there a way to change the syntax colors and font size in the Source Viewer?

  • Hi.

    I'm an old-fashioned hand-coder and like to use Opera to edit my web pages. The trouble is, I'm getting old and my eyes aren't what they used to be. I can't even read the CSS code anymore because of the small font and lack of contrast.

    I'd really appreciate it if someone could tell me how to change the syntax colors and font size in the Source Viewer so I can keep using Opera for this. Lately I've had to start using Notepad and it's just not near as handy as just switching tabs between the page and code.

    Thanks in advance!

    In Opera 12 or earlier, change the source viewer to one of your choice in Preferences, Programs.

  • Hi Pesala.

    Thanks for responding. I'm not trying to change the source viewer to another program, I just want to change the syntax colors and font size of Opera's source viewer.

    I'm running version 12.16 on Windows 7. I upgraded last night to version 19, so I actually have two versions. I'm editing pages in version 12.16 though, as version 19 doesn't seem to let you edit the source code of pages.
