phpstorm - colorized word, can't remember how I configured it, help!

Hello,

Awhile back I modified my preferences within phpstorm to colorize the word 'code' and all words that come after it to blue. For the life of me I cannot remember where I did this and was hoping someone could point me in the right direction.

Here's a screenshot of what it looks like:

Any help tracking this down would be greatly appreciated.

best regards,

me

Hi there,

What custom plugins do you have there? Must be one of them...

Right now -- no ideas .. except... very weird (IMO) usage of TODO patterns. To check: open TODO tool window and see if you will get that text/line mentioned there.

Hi Andriy,

Thank you for responding. I do not have any special plugins installed and when I go to the TODO tool wndow I do not see that pattern listed. Very odd indeed.

Well...

1. If you hover over that part -- will it show any popups/tooltips?

2. Is there any marker on the scroll bar that correspond to that line?

3. How does it look if you use different Color Scheme (e.g Default one / Classic Light)?

4. If you place caret there (on "code based...") and invoke Quick Fix menu (Alt+Enter in most Keymaps/OS) -- what do you see?

5. Place caret there (on "code based..."), then invoke "Help | Find Action by Name", type there "colors and fonts" and then click on "Jump to Colors and Fonts" entry -- what do you see?

Other than that: I'm sorry, but I cannot suggest anything more based on such very limited info... and run out of ideas by now.

Hi Andriy,

On looking at the TODO window again I found the following which is what is applying that styling.

Thank you for you help, much appreciated!

Glad you have it resolved and thanks for letting me know (will also be useful for others in similar situation).

As for the issue: I may only suggest to make such pattern more unique, e.g. add extra symbols that would not normally appear in such context (for example (the text between quotes): "code: ") .. or make it case sensitive (e.g. "TODO") .. etc -- experiment a bit.

I personally have these patterns:

Great suggestions Andriy. I'm now using @code which is so much easier to identify, thanks again!
