Description twifty 2016-03-07 04:59:41 UTC
When setting custom fonts/colours, then restarting the IDE, those customizations are not loaded.

Steps to reproduce, (I'm using the PHP version but I expect it's global):
1. options > Fonts/Colors > profile (switch to "Norway Today").
2. Under the annotations tab, select breakpoint and change the background colour. I applied a 40% alpha to the pink.
3. Apply the changes and set a breakpoint. The line should have a semi transparent highlighting.
4. Restart the IDE.
5. Set a breakpoint again, the highlight has reverted back to "Norway Today" default.

A workaround is to change the profile, hit apply then change back to "Norway Today". The customizations are now correctly loaded.

I'm guessing the IDE is loading only the profile and skipping any customizations when it loads. But selecting the profile correctly looks for those changes.
