Colour dialogue

Use the options and features available to choose your desired colour.

Normal text colour Use this to select the colour that you would like normal script syntax (not comments or errors) to be displayed in. This affects how the custom report editor lists the custom report scripts in the raw script list box.
Comment text colour Use this to select the colour that you would like script comments to be displayed in. This affects how the custom report editor lists the custom report scripts in the raw script list box.
Error text colour Use this to select the colour that you would like script errors to be displayed in.  Whenever the script editor doesn't understand a line of text, it changes it into a comment, so that the script will continue to load.  But this setting allows you to clearly identify these comments which are actually errors. There should be no errors in a script.  This affects how the custom report editor lists the custom report scripts in the raw script list box.
Keyword Text Use this to select the colour that you would like script keywords (eg: LOOP, PARAGRAPH, TEXT, EOL etc.) to display in. This affects how the custom report editor lists the custom report scripts in the raw script list box.
Function Text Use this to select the colour that you would like expression functions (eg: len(), trim() etc.) to display in. This affects how the custom report editor lists the custom report scripts in the raw script list box.
Variable Text Use this to select the colour that you would like variables (eg: $LocalCong etc.) to display in. This affects how the custom report editor lists the custom report scripts in the raw script list box.
Assigned speaker talk number colour Use this to select the colour that you would like speakers assigned talk numbers to be highlighted when when assigning home and away talks.  This aids you in not selecting a talk that a brother doesn't give.
Speakers favourite talk text colour Similar to above, but it indicates the speakers favourite talk numbers instead. So if you use two different colours, you can easily see which talks a speaker prefers to give.
Ministerial Servant Use this to select the colour that you would like speakers who are appointed as Ministerial Servant's to show as in the speaker drop lists when assigning home and away talks.
