I don't think enough attention has been paid to how serious the color bugs are with the editor. Even if I can get the colors set about the way I want, they are unstable and may revert back to defaults the next time I open a .cs file. If I close and reopen vs the colors are again as I want them. This is unpredicable.
Each new version of visual studio seems to make life more difficult for users that use a black editor background. The default colors never work correctly with this color background of course. The fonts and colors window is very difficult to use, and if the color settings are unstable, you spend way too much time and effort fighting the editor settings.
There seem to be several editor highlighting settings that are not adjustable, such as the redundant or unused code fragments. The way the font is dimmed against the black background makes it almost impossible to see what you are editing.
There are a few other cases where the editor highlighting has made the underlying text impossible to read. A basic rule should be that whatever highlighting is used, it shoud never obscure the text. The syntax highlighting and setup in notepad++ for example is actually better than the vs editor stuff.
I know these issues are only partly on resharper, but would be nice if more attention were given to the instability bugs.
