I recently posted my colour scheme for Management Studio 2005/2008, and have just completed porting it to Management Studio 2012.
As before, itâ€™s based on a combination of Solarized and Son of Obsidian.Â The most visible change from the 2008 version is the highlighting â€“ Visual Studio 2010 uses transparency for highlighting text, which looks rather bad whenÂ combined with my previous dark yellow colour. Iâ€™ve set it to black for now, which doesnâ€™t look too bad. This plugin will apparently fix the transparency, but I haven’t tried as yet.
You can download the settings file from here (rename to remove the .txt extension from the file), and use the Tools â€“> Import and Export Settings menu in Management Studio. This also allows you to take a backup of your current settings, or revert back to defaults.
If you enjoy the settings, or have any suggestions, please let me know! Iâ€™m still using SSMS 2008 as my main IDE, so this version isnâ€™t quite as well tested yet.
If youâ€™re not a fan, or youâ€™d like to enjoy other colour schemes for Visual Studio 2010, check out studiostyles (although many of the styles wonâ€™t be specifically set up for the SQL* elements in Fonts and Colors, so you may have to do some editing).
