Is there a way to set the default highlighting level to Syntax instead of Inspection?

I am finding that inspection level highlighting is too slow fr the size of my projects/speed of my work PC (Core i5, 3.25GB) and would like to be able to set the default highlighting level to simply syntax.

Is this possible?

By right-clicking on the bar to the right (with many yellow highlights), choosing "customize highlight level", and "Configure Inspections", you can uncheck every type of files that you don't want the editor to verify, for the whole project, and choose "Disable new inspections by default". 

This solved it for me. Here us the sequence of pictures:

Still no solution?

Why it takes so long to introduce this setting.

Appears this is possible (?) with IntelliJ idea: http://stackoverflow.com/q/33906873/32453

There is related issue on YouTrack: https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-107752. Feel free to add your suggestions in comments.

That's a very good point Dmitry, shutting down the inspectors does lead to crippling the environment - really negating the whole point of using PyCharm in the first place.

I use RubyMine and PhpStorm besides PyCharm, and the whole ethos of using the inspectors is what makes these tools so good to work with in the first place: the suggestion I made in my other message was ill conceived only taking into consideration a way to achieve the requested aim, rather than taking into consideration what the outcome would be.

Thank you for taking time to give your input.

If you go to Settings|Inspections you can turn off any inspections that you don't require - I think that is what you are meaning by the level of highlighting.

For example, if you are doing a project that isn't Django based, you might as well turn off all of those - no point in having the test running no matter how briefly - similarly for CoffeeScript, Google App Engine and so on.

Just select the ones that you are actually going to possibly require and things should pick up somewhat for you.

No, and we have no plans to provide this possibility. In our point, turning down the default highlighting level effectively cripples PyCharm, and if the only way PyCharm works for you is in a crippled state, then you shouldn't try to suffer through this and should use another tool instead. (And before you do that, it would be nice if you could send us a CPU snapshot as described in http://devnet.jetbrains.com/docs/DOC-1212 so that we could fix the performance issue.)
