  • [SOLVED] syntax coloring

    Hello everyone! The question concerns the syntax coloring.
    If I choose a background color FOR SELECTION other than zero, then I can't select words with the mouse.
    And it is no longer possible to select a letter in a word.The picture shows that I tried to highlight the fifth to seventh lines, but the words were not highlighted.
    And if I select letters inside a word, I don't see which letters are highlighted.
    Is this a bug or is it done on purpose?

  • Hello,

    Thank you for your inquiry.
    Such an issue is not known to us.
    I assume it is related to thecomment block letters.
    Could you provide and example c file for reproduction?

    Best regards,
    Nino

    Thank you for reply! It doesn't depend on the letters or the file. This depends on the color setting(Tools -> Options -> Color Schemes).
    The image shows that I selected the entire text. But the preprocessor commands (#ifdef, #define) are still colored in their own color, and you can't see that they are highlighted.
    Also, the comment is not highlighted, the "void" is not highlighted, and the numbers are not highlighted, because the background color for them is different from zero. If you choose background color=0 for them, everything will be fine, but I want a colored background. You never know what I want)), but suddenly it can be fixed in the settings? Maybe I just didn't see an item in the menu?

  • Hello,

    The reported behaviour is still not reproducible. What color scheme do you have selected?
    Can you provide a source file for reproduction where you can reproduce the behaviour with?
    Please understand that without exact reproduction steps we can't investigate further.

    Best regards,

    Yes, I understand, all right. Here is the SEGGER Embedded Studio settings file(settings.xml) with my color settings, and source file(main2.c) as axample.

  • Hello,

    Thank you for providing the files. With them the issue was reproducible. It is related to the selected background color for the color scheme you have selected. If you disable the background color marking should work as expected.
    We will see if we can improve the behaviour here.

    Best regards,
