Disabling automatic syntax annotation highlighting

You may want to disable the default editor setting that automatically performs syntax annotation highlighting in the editor.

To disable syntax annotation highlighting:

  1. In the editor, hover the mouse over the yellow wavy line until the popup appears.

  2. Press F2 to have the focus for the popup.
  3. In the bottom-left corner of the pop-up window, click the Configure Annotation Preferences button to open the Preferences window.
    In the Preferences window for Annotations, the C/C++ Indexer Markers option will be preselected for you.
  4. Deselect the Text as button.
  5. Click OK.
