Side Panel Preferences

On the Panels tab in the Preferences screen, you can change the appearance of EditPad’s side panels.

You can select a font face from the drop down list. Set the font size using the spinner box.

If you select "same colors as the file editor" then the side panels use the text and background colors of the plain text color in the color palette of the file type of the active file. If you use different palettes for different file types, then the side panel colors will change when you switch between files that use different palettes. This can cause a very slight delay if you have many side panels open.

If you select “custom colors” then the side panels always use the same colors. Click the Background Color button to change the background of the side panels. Click the Text Color button to change the font’s color. If you select a light background and a dark text color, then turning on View|Dark Theme swaps the colors. If the theme is already dark then selecting a dark background and a light text color makes View|Dark Theme swap the colors when you turn it off.

These settings are used by the Clip Collection, Files Panel, Explorer Panel, FTP Panel, File History, and File Navigator panels.

These settings are not used by the Search Panel. The Search and Replace boxes always use the same font and colors as the file you’re editing. The font and colors for files can be set via Options|Configure File Types.

The Character Map panel uses the colors you specify for the side panels. But it always uses the same font as the file you’re editing.
