Scrollbars are too dark #1802

Short Summary

Just had 3 people ask about changing the scroll bar to a lighter colour in the last 5 days, two of them were today. I put my bean in that hat too, i've just been too lazy to change the colour.

This shouldn't take custom css. It makes sense to me to have an option in the Interface section of the Color Schemes editor.

Can you please provide step-by step process on how to change the color of the scrollbars in Komodo Edit 10.1.1 (Windows 7) as I have tried the above work-around, but it did not work. The scrollbars are too dark to see properly.

Open Tools - Color Scheme Editor - Interface. Add this code to custom CSS: (right area of the window)

scrollbar thumb
    background: #ff0000 !important;

The above fix doesn't work for me on Komodo IDE 10.1.4 MacOS Sierra.

In fact, when I add this to the Custom CSS area for the Interface section, and apply, and close, then go back into the Color Scheme Editor the lines added have disappeared.

Hit "New" to copy the current color scheme, then make the modifications.

Thank-you! I can confirm Defman21's workaround as per above commented made on Nov 13, 2016 worked for me on Windows 7 Komodo edit v10.4.4
