In VS 2012+ we can modify colors on quite a granular level. I generally don't change any of the colors except for the namespace color. We have a lot of namespaces and it is really advantageous to have the namespace fade into the background to reduce the information that is displayed on the screen.

The following screenshots show the comparison. The namespaces become distracting while reading the code. It would be great if VA offers some granularity in the way colors are applied.

I don't see how I can set the color for namespaces only. I don't see the option in Tools > Options > Fonts and Colors either.

Unfortunately, you cannot set a separate color for namespaces.

I have just come across a case for this:

case=39380

In a way, namespaces are like comments: they are less important than the code itself.
