> I can use the "Gui Preferences" menu item under the Edit menu has an option that lets you change the background color for the console window and any help/info windows that pop up, but the script window(s) still have the white background.  Am I missing a setting somewhere? Is this a missing feature? Is there some reason (other than nobody getting around to it) that script windows don't match the others (font size matches), or that they cannot be changed on their own?

I think it's a bug:  the code tries to set the editor background to the 
same as the console background, but it always comes out white. I'll take 
a look.
