Description of Problem:
Class names doesnt have a correct highlight
Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Open MD 2.8
2. See any class or any type(semantic), neither have his name colored
The types (semantic) names are black, when Visual Studio scheme says that these names needs to be colored in clear-blue.
All the types(semantics) to have the color in Visual Studio scheme
How often does this happen?
Semantic highlighting has never been enabled by default, because it was slow and buggy. Since it was causing serious problems for people who enabled it, we temporarily removed it.
We are working on a new type resolver that will make semantic highlighting much more performant and reliable. We will then enable it by default.
That feature got disabled in 2.8 because of internal problems caused by incompatible ast representations.
But semantic highlighting in 2.8 has no checkbox for semantic highlighting anymore - that's why I close that one.
Somantic highlighting will be back in the next major release.
