Matching brackets highlighting suggestion

Is there some hidden way to change the color of highlighting matching brackets?
Dark blue isn't good choice for me, I have some difficulties in recognizing
whether the cursor is on the left or right side of the highlighted bracket.
I'd like some very light blue - but this is surely something what could be
easily customizable.

Hello Borek,

there is a way for doing that, and it is not hidden - just use Tools->Options->Fonts
and Colors and
set the color you like for ReSharper Matched Bracket display item.

Thank you, but unfortunately Visual Studio crashes after trying to enter
"Fonts and Colors" section of VS options. Other sections of options dialog
work fine. What kind of information do you want to discover possible bug?

Borek,

the problem is almost certainly in the contents of the registry key
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\7.1\Text Editor\External Markers. This
key
enumerates all markers ('display items') created by third-party extensions
to VS.NET.
VS.NET does not like if an invalid entry is located there - in such a situation
it crashes
whenever you access 'Fonts and Colors'. So you'll need to clean up this key
- unfortunately
this will involve some registry editing.

Try to remove all subkeys containing values that in turn contain 'ReSharper'
substring. Check if the crash
persists. If no, try to reinstall ReSharper and check again - all should
be OK now. If yes, please post
default values (shown as (Default) in regedit) of registered markers here
- we'll take a look at them.

Thaks a lot, the problem is gone. See an attachement for complete 'External Markers' key.

Sorry, I've found the attachment. I don't see any criminal there though.
Most likely the problem is in a
previous version of ReSharper not uninstalled correctly.
