Question about Quick Switch Editor highlighting

There is menu item Quick Switch Editor highlighting in Quick Switch Scheme.. popup menu (Ctrl+`), but it is disabled.
I have two highlighting schemes in Colors and Fonts - default + myScheme.
How does this feature work, exactly? Why is it disabled?

"Quick Switch Scheme | Switch Editor Highlighting" switches between inspection
profiles available in Settings | Errors. The action will be disabled if you
have only one profile configured.

To switch between color schemes, use "Quick Switch Scheme | Switch Color
Scheme".

I see
BTW it is confusing - I thought "editor highlighting" is actually related to colors/fonts. Would it be better to call it "error highlighting?"

I played with this feature a bit and bumped into another "non-intuitive" behaviour
Having added a few Project Profiles, menu item was still greyed out. I guess that's because Default Project Profile was , and there was only one IDE Profile. When there is >1 IDE profile, it is ungrayed. This is strange - why is it impossible to quickly switch Profile to one of Project Profiles in this case? (>1 Project profile, 1 IDE profile, Default Project Profile =]]>)
