Variables font color in editor

Post by Grovkillen » Tue Sep 27, 2016 11:12 am

Hi,

Would it be possible to have variables in bold/color etc. in the Editor? Kinda like how internal variables are bold and brown?

It is sometimes hard to tell what is a variable and what is appendix / prefix.

See example below:

Code: Select all

Let>VAR_NAME=Text
Let>NEW_VAR=%VAR_NAME%appendix_text
In the example the text/appendix_text is the same font/color as VAR_NAME/NEW_VAR... hard to tell the difference.

What do others think?

I've added this to the wish list, however, it may only be possible to show variables within % % symbols, as finding a parsing rule which will locate all possible placements of variables is tricky, given that with Macro Scheduler you don't have to specify a literal string and a variable any differently.

Only between % would work for me. 8)
