I've just set up a new machine with VS2019 and can't get Visual Assist to use dark mode colours for Enhanced Syntax Coloring.

According to the documentation, VA is supposed to detect dark mode on installation and use appropriate colours automatically, but I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling VA (via the extensions menu in VS) with no luck.

The docs also say there is a Use Defaults button that resets the colours back to defaults, but this button isn't showing up for me.

Is there a quick fix I can do to get up and running? I'd be really grateful for a registry hack to force the colours to dark mode, or even just a list of hex values for the default dark mode colours that I can enter manually.

Thanks for your help.

Can you please try to resetting colors via Tools -> Options... -> Environment -> Fonts and Colors -> Use Defaults

If it doesn't help please try restarting Visual Studio.

Does this help?
