      Description

      From the UI of Tools > Options > Text Editor > Fonts & Colors, it is very unclear that a user must first copy a scheme before being able to change it.

      If a scheme is not editable:

      • Hide the controls for editing it
      • Show the information "You need to copy the scheme to edit it." instead
      • Make the label / "copy" a clickable link that triggers the copy action
