project navigator : error highlight not visible [SOLVED]


I would like to know if it is possible to highlight, in the project navigator, files in error with something similar to the red-squigly-underline used in the top bar ? Currently, you are highlighting with "bold", which is very difficult to discern. In the example below, i 'injected' bad code in the IBAddressSpec class. As you can see, it is easy to spot at with the red-squigly underline in the top bar, but hard to see in the navigator itself.


1. did I miss a setting in the ocean of settings for the IDE ?

2. If no such setting exists, is there a currently tracked feature request I could up-vote ?

Hi there,

It underwaves just fine for me -- must be your (modified/custom) color schema:

Check what you have got for "Settings/Preferences | Editor | Colors & Fonts | General --> Errors & Warnings | Error"

Try Default color schema together with light GUI Theme

Hello Andriy, thanks.


I had changed that to "boxed" because the 'missing colon' is nearly impossible to spot, navigate to, find with gutter highlights (on my "IDE" screen), as here : 

Not sure in which context i prefer to suffer now :).

Again, "Project navigator" is not "Editor", i fooled myself by being too 'literal' with stuff i read in your UI.


Again, how do I mark this "Answered" ?

The best ticket I could find so far is this one: -- have a look at it and related ones.

I believe I have seen a request about having some special/dedicated style just for errors in Project View (so it's easier to discover + situation like you had -- one style that looks the best in editor and a bit different that work good in actual Project View) but it has been quite some time ago (possible 3 or so years ago) and I cannot find that ticket or thread now.

For now -- watch the aforementioned ticket. The ticket, for example, has interesting concept of how to show compile errors (last attachment) -- something similar could be used for parsing/analysis errors as well.


Post approval by admin/moderators (to deal with recent spam posts/comments) may take some time. So even if usual user (like me) will answer straight away you may see it with some delay.

Currently this can be done only by JB employees.
