LispWorks Editor User Guide > 4 Editing Lisp Programs


4.2 Syntax coloring

When in Lisp mode, the LispWorks editor provides automatic Lisp syntax coloring and parenthesis matching to assist the editing of Lisp programs.

You can ensure a buffer is in Lisp mode as described in Automatic entry into lisp mode.

To modify the colors used in Lisp mode syntax coloring, use Preferences... > Environment > Styles > Colors And Attributes as described in the LispWorks IDE User Guide . Adjust the settings for the styles whose names begin with "Lisp".
