VSTS 2012 Fonts & Colors User Types Missing

Category: visual studio editor

I have just recently installed Visual Studio 2012 Premium RTM and it is setup for c# development.  None of my custom User Types in the editor are highlighted with a color.  If I go into "Tools-->Options-->Environment-->Fonts and Colors" and look under "Display Items"  I used to see "User Types" that I could configure but in VSTS 2012 these are missing.  I have tried importing my vsts 2010 settings, I have tried resetting the settings to c# defaults, and I have tried running a repair on VSTS 2012 all with no luck.

Thanks for your help in advance.
