Hidden Settings -- How to Change

http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b148/sjoshuaross/settings_zpse9595097.jpg

In the link above, there are certain things I can't find the settings for that I want to change.
First, you'll notice in my printf statement near the bottom of the open file, the variable that is in the template file i've set up for printf is outlined in red when I start typing. I've looked all over the settings, particularly in (Settings | Editor | Colors and Fonts), and I've been unable to find a setting for this.

You'll also notice red jagged underlines under the file name and the src folder near the top.

Neither of these settings seems readily accessible. Is there a way to change them?

Hi there,

First, you'll notice in my printf statement near the bottom of the open file, the variable that is in the template file i've set up for printf is outlined in red when I start typing.

I think that color is hardcoded / part of the Theme itself (Darcula -> Settings | Appearance | Theme) and cannot be changed by user. Better file a ticket to the Issue Tracker (unless somebody else already created it)

You'll also notice red jagged underlines under the file name and the src folder near the top.

That means that there are errors in your code (most likely because you have not finished typing when used your live template). Underwave color can be changed/removed in Settings | Editor | Colors & Fonts | General | Error --> Effects (Underwaved) + Color -- it will affect error higlighting in both Editor as well as Project View/Tabs/Navigation Bar

Thanks for telling me it's hardcoded, I will file a ticket.

As for the underline, that setting didn't seem to change it -- in fact, that setting didn't have an underscore already when I went to look at it. That's apparently not the one, and in fact I don't think any setting in that part of the settings will change it, because I think I've removed all red underwaves completely from the colors and fonts settings.

If you remove effects/color, the underwave is gone from Project View, but remains on Tab/Navigation Bar indeed.

Either wait for additional clarification from actual dev .. or check for existing tickets (and file new one if desired if none found) on Issue Tracker.

Hello Tkol, have you tried 12.0.2 ?

Given the screenshot you posted, I think perhaps you misunderstood what I'm saying I want to change:
I want to change the fact that when I type in the input field in a Live Template, it gets outlined in red.
I know how to change the templates themselves, I just don't want it to get outlined in red when I start typing in the variable.
I'd like to change that, personally, to maybe a background color or foreground color setting, instead of a border.

If you look at the photo I posted, you'll see what I mean.

In fact, here's a photo I made just to make it more clear:
Untitled-1.jpg
I have a live template that looks like this:
System.out.printf( $F$ ,
        $END$ );
and when I type, in the editor (not the place where you edit the template, the actual editor, where you're working with project files and stuff), the value in for $F$, it gets outlined in red as shown above. 12.02 does not solve this, as far as I can see.
