Put default colorscheme in /Addons/Colors

Hello! I'm completely new but I think I'll like this program very much. Anyway, I've already run into a problem and have a suggestion:

I tried out a bunch of the additional colorschemes that come with a full install of Far Manager. Then I wanted to change back to the original colorscheme, the one that a fresh install of Far Manager comes with, but I couldn't find a way to revert the changes, except by completely deleting my %APPDATA%/Far Manager/Profiles folder.

I propose adding a default_colors.farconfig file inside of /Addons/Colors/Costum Highlighting/ and /Addons/Colors/Default Highlighting/ that the user can use to import the default colorscheme.

It is enough to delete one file from that folder: colors.db.

Oh, wow, sorry. I've even used that option before. I'm an idiot. facepalm2 Feel free to delete this topic.

@[mention]Shmuel[/mention]: I tried removing only that file but then all the folders had black backgrounds.
