Note: I looked for a bugs or help sub-forum but all I could find was this big old 'discussions' list. So apologies if this is misplaced.
I just restarted my PC and went to carry on coding, but it seems that phpStorm auto-updated itself with an update that somewhat broke the syntax highlighting. I'm not familiar enough with the settings panel to figure out what I need to change to get it back to how it should be, or whether I simply need to revert to the previous version.
The version I am on is 7.1.3, I do not know what version I was on before. It has been a while since I restarted the machine / software.
Here's a screenshot of what it looks like now:
Usually "<!DOCTYPE" all of the < and > would be blue, and the HTML comment would be bright pink like the PHP comment you can see at the top but for some reason it's really struggling to figure out what's going on.
I've checked the "Editor > Colours & Fonts" settings, where HTML comments are set as pink and HTML tags are set as blue; though as you can see these settings aren't being used.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated as this will drive me insane. Thanks!
