[fpc-pascal] FPC IDE on Windows: Configuring colours

If this is the wrong list for asking about the IDE, I would be glad if 
you could point me at the right list.

I use FreePascal for occasional programming. However, lately I find the 
colours in the IDE difficult to read - especially integer constants 
which appear dark blue-grey on a dark blue background. Maybe it's 
because I'm using an LCD. Yes, that must be it. (Getting old? me? :-> )

The user guide says there should be an option under Options|Environment 
to change colours, like the one in BP7. But there is no such option on 
my setup here.

My questions are:

   How do I change the IDE colours? Is there some configuration I need to
   change to enable the dialogue?

I am using Windows XP. The version (from Help|About) is:

FreePascal IDE for Win32 for i386
          Target CPU: i386
     Version 1.0.10 2008/08/03
      (Compiler Version 2.2.2)
        (Debugger GDB 6.2.1)

which I think should be the latest version of everything. I downloaded 
and installed FPC and the IDE (fpc-2.2.2.i386-win32.exe) yesterday, 
thinking the Colours option must have been added more recently than the 
version I was using before that. I do not recall what version I had 
installed before yesterday; I uninstalled it before installing the 
latest version, and I did not keep a copy of the installation file.
