> I tried to create my own syntax highlighting theme but accidentally wrote #fffff instead of #ffffff for white. Now MonoDevelope refuses to let me change to any theme and it throws an Unhandled Exception every time I start the application or enter Preferences->Text Editor->Syntax Highlighting. No text is displayed. The error message is listed below.
> Also, I can't copy the error message (OS X). Cmd-c clears everything. I had to open Console.
> How can I reset Monodevelop so that it uses the default syntax highlighting theme again? Replacing the application does not work, and I can't find any MonoDevelop files in the Library.

Hi Carl,
Remove .config/MonoDevelop/MonoDevelopProperties.xml (and
.config/MonoDevelop/MonoDevelopProperties.xml.previous ) from your
home directory.
Alternatively, I think you can edit the ColorScheme element in that
file - the default is "Default"
