I'm sure there is a setting for this somewhere (like there is for everything else) but I'm not finding it.
In PhpStorm, ampersand show up in usual php contexts:
if( $i && $j)
but if when I type an ampersand in a string, it is "invisible" :
$string = 'I like cookies cream ';
Lack of feedback that the ampersand is actually there is bugging me. Any ideas?
