JetBrains Rider 2018.1 Help

Setting Background Image

JetBrains Rider allows you to define any image as a background. You can set a background image for the current project only, or for any project you open or create anew.

This feature has no keyboard shortcut (you can easily create a shortcut as described in the section Configuring Keyboard Shortcuts).

To set a custom background image:

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Press Shift twice (see Search Everywhere), or press Ctrl+Shift+A, and type Set background image in the search field.
    • In the Settings/Preference dialog (Ctrl+Alt+S), select Appearance & Behavior | Appearance and click the Background Image button.
  2. In the dialog box that opens, specify the image you want to use as the background, its opacity, filling and placement options. Besides that, you can choose to show background in the editor and tool windows, or in the JetBrains Rider frame.

    Also, select the This project only checkbox to show background in the current project, and ignore this background in the other projects.
