Random Colors for Document Tab in 2003 Theme

From HippoEDIT 1.50 default design for Document Tabs in 2003 theme has been changed. Now editor does not assign a random color for new tabs but displays them (by default) in standard frame color. This change was needed to allow you assign specific, syntax related colors to tabs. You can do this by the setting of Associative Color in Miscellaneous tab of syntax.

If you for some reason do not like new behavior for 2003 visualization, you can revert old logic by use of following XML flag, in hippoedit.config:


create the line if does not exist, and put value you want. Default value is false.

You can background color of document tabs only in 2002 Theme. In XP it does not have any effect.
