PhpStorm 2016.2

Is possible to make PhpStorm highlight the closing "tag" when using PHP's alternate syntax for control structures?
If we write:

<?php if($x==5) { ?>
<?php } ?>

If i put the cursor next to or before the opening/closing brace, PhpStorm will automatically highlight the matching opening/closing brace.
Now, if we write the same code but this time using PHP's alternate syntax for control structures, we end up with something like this:

<? if ($x==5): ?>
<? endif; ?>

In this case, PhpStorm will not highlight either the opening "if" or the closing "endif;".
Is there a way to make it highlight it?

For me this is my biggest complaint with PHP storm.  I have a license I basically never use because of this.  

When you write Wordpress themes almost EVERYTHING is in PHP's alternative syntax.

@John, is fixed now. What's exactly not working for you?

Dmitry Tronin, We can't call it "fixed".

1. Highlighting is not complete
2. If you have several levels, this does not work correctly
