How to? Color input line

Now retired, I used TC and TCC for many years at work, but not much lately. I just installed TCC/LE on Windows 10 and am foundering with a few simple things.

When I use the option command, the dialog comes up, but changes are not saved. At least, the change I'm trying to make -- making the input color yellow on black. Is that a limitation of LE, or have I overlooked something?

Thanks!
 
I seem to have resolved this. I added ErrorColors and InputColors directives to TCMD.INI. That worked, and for some reason, when I make changes, the changes now are saved. Puzzling, but I'm glad to get what I wanted.

HOWEVER, I wonder, is there is a list of INI directives anywhere? Searching the help, I found help on only those not controlled by the option command. But the other ones don't seem to be listed . . . or have I missed them?
 
@Joe Caverly - Thanks. Yes, that's the page that I mentioned. It talks around the Directives but doesn't actually describe any -- save the few that aren't covered by the option command.

I keep feeling I must have missed something, but if so, I still can't find it!

When you use the OPTION command, do you see in the title bar the INI file name you expect to see?

Yes, I do. It's funny . . . now that I've put InputColors and ErrorColors into the INI file manually, I can change the colors using options, and the changes stick. But until I did that, no luck.

It's fortunate I ran across an example in the help that showed use of InputColors; then I guessed (correctly) that ErrorColors would work, too.
