I have Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate with Productivity Power Tools. With all my font settings to a darker background, almost black, I have changed the color of the Current Line (Extension) to black. 

Every time I restart Visual Studio 2010 the current line is highlighted with the default light grey color again. 

I can correct this by opening up "Tools", "Options...", "Enviroment", "Fonts and Colors" and clicking "OK" but I need to do this EVERY TIME I load VS2010. All I need to do is click "OK". I do not reset the color to black, as it is already set that way. In other words, it appears the Visual Studio initializes the font and color settings neglecting this one color I have customized.

Hi Ralph,

Thanks for letting us know about this issue. Unfortunately, this is an issue in Visual Studio 2010 itself (rather than in the Power Tools) so we cannot fix this in the extension. Now that the highlight current line power tool has been integrated into Visual Studio 11, we believe that this issue is now "fixed" so I'm resolving this issue as such.
