Webstorm 2020.03.04 not working properly with react

Hi there, 

I have just updated to the newest verison of Webstorm on my Mac running the latest version of macOS.

The issue I am facing is that the syntax highlighting as well as Code checking does not work within functional components of react. 

It looks like this: 

Is there a way to fix this? Did I do something wrong? The language is set to JSX.


Thank you for your help!

Please try invalidating caches (File > Invalidate caches, Invalidate and Restart) - does the issue persist?

If yes, it must be https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/WEB-36242. Is your project attached to other projects/have nested '.idea' folders in its structure?

Invalidating caches did nothing unfortuately. The project is not nested but there is a server node project in the root level. The React project is in a subfolder to be served by the server. It did work before the update though :/

No idea why but deleting .idea and then reopening the project solved the issue. Thank you for mentioning it! 

So its all good now.
