So after installing 1.5.4 I was able to get this feature working. On 1.6.13 no dice.
Are you still going on about the highlighting thing? How is that in any way related to the topic of this thread: "Changing curly bracket color""? What was the point of you creating a thread specifically for that topic if you're not going to use it? If you had actually read my response to your other thread you'd know that you don't need to all the way back to 1.5.4.
Does anyone know if there is a way to contact the designer to see if they plan to allow this functionality to be switched on/off at some point?
If you look at my response to your other thread you'll see I posted a link to the issue report on the bug tracker so the "designer" has already been contacted about this. In fact the guy "JulyJim" aka Vaclav has brought up the topic many times both on the bug tracker and here on the forum so there's no point in doing it again.
