I've just upgraded to SSMS 2012 and chose 'Yes import my custom settings'. (I'm not sure what it imported because there's no sign of any of my customisations but that's another story.) But in the query editor it shows database, table and column names in a horrible colour. A strange blue-like thing called Teal. In 2008R2 this was controlled by changing the Text Editor | Plain Text option but that no longer seems to do anything. I've tried changing everything that shows this colour in the preview sample but none of them made it go away. All my lovely scripts look horrible and I can't face looking at this all day. Please help!
This DOES NOT WORK. I can go into the Options->Environment->Fonts and Colors. I change Plain text from default to ANY OTHER COLOR (Tried multiple) and it did not affect the plain text. It just changed the cursor. Well, who even cares what color the cursor is? Purple cursor with teal type? Whooo. Nice trick. Worthless, though. I changed EVERYTHING with a teal default color to PURPLE. Guess what happened. The cursor turned purple and the text stayed teal. It all looks like comments. BTW, plain text default shows as black. It's still teal. Microsoft = FAIL Windows 8 = fail SQL 2012 = fail Office 2013 = fail Can't get anything right. They should trash everything new they've come out with in the past 2 years and just come back with the old stuff. Otherwise, they are going out of business soon.
