VS2010 - Pro Power Tools - Highlight the selected tab in the document well

If you are using Visual Studio 2010 and you don't have downloaded the Pro Power Tools, then do it now!
One awesome feature of that extension is the Document Well Plus, that gives you nice coloring of tab pages.
1 problem though… see below

Bad Figure: VS2010 - Document well - Which one is the current selected tab?
It's the "ConnectController.cs", but impossible to see!


Radames (Microsoft) sent me to this little info on how to bring back the default color for the selected tab page!

We have a setting that will use standard VS colors for the selected tab, even if it has a custom color. Perhaps you can try it out and see if it helps:
reg add HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\10.0\DialogPage\Microsoft.DocWellBehavior.ColorGeneralOptions /v UseCustomColorForSelected /t REG_SZ /d False /f
Please let us know whether it helps or not.

Thanks Radames Cruz
