MATLAB syntax highlighting color settings

You can customize the colors for syntax highlighting using the matlab.colors settings. Access matlab.colors settings using the root SettingsGroup object returned by the settings function. For example, set the temporary value for the color of comments to [173 235 255] (light blue).

s = settings;
s.matlab.colors.CommentColor.TemporaryValue = [173 235 255]

For more information about settings, see Access and Modify Settings.
