All descripted configurations are setted under ‘Window’ -> ‘Preferences’.
Font-Face within the Project-Explorer and Outline perspective:
The Project-Explorer and Outline perspective in Aptana Studio 3 uses a monotype font. That’s not so good, because the fixed-width of each letter let be the text often very long.
To change these font, go to ‘General’ -> ‘Appearance’ -> ‘Colors and Fonts’ within the Tree, and change the font at ‘Basics’ -> ‘Text Font’ -> ‘App Explorer/Outline View Font’ into your prefered proportional font.
Changing the color theme:
I don’t like the dark color and syntax hightlight theme, which seems to be standard in Aptana Studio 3. But we can switch back to the classic Eclipse one.
You will find it within the tree at ‘Aptana’ -> ‘Themes’, then select Eclipse as Theme.
Select Firefox as webbrowser:
To select the Firefox as the default Browser in Aptana Studio 3, navigate within the tree to ‘General’ -> ‘Web Browser’, then set the radiobutton to ‘Use external web browser’. Add a new Web Browser by typing name: ‘Firefox’ and in my case location: ‘/usr/lib/firefox’.
