In this course we are going to be coding in a tool called Aptana Studio.…You can follow along with any text, or web editor that you choose or if you want…to download a free copy of Aptana Studio you can go to Aptana.com and download a…copy for Macintosh or Windows.…When you download and install this particular editor one of the things that it…has is the capability to change themes.…By default, Aptana Studio 3 has this really dark background.…I am going to come up to the Aptana Studio 3 menu on the Mac, or you can choose…the Preferences under the Window menu on Windows, come down to Aptana, come…down to Themes and inside of here I can change the themes that this is going to be using.…
For this course I would like to go back to Aptana Studio 2.X. This is going to…give me a white background and it's going to let the color coding really show…and be a lot easier for you to follow along.…Once I've made this change I am going to click OK.…Now every time I launch Aptana Studio it's going to use this particular theme…
