Hi all,

I was wondering if this functionality is available:
Using as C source editor is there a matching braces in same color.

Thanks.

It should be on by default.   Go to Tools>Options and pick Editing, General, and be sure Parenthesis matching style is set to "Highlight". 

I've attached a picture of what it looks like in my editor.

New user here, I'm really enjoying SlickEdit. As for the topic at hand, I could barely see the highlighting since the default 'lavender' color was very subtle in dark mode. I finally figured out how to change it to something more noticeable (for my eyes at least) like to a hot pink :D  If anyone else is wondering how to change the parentheses highlighting color, go to Tools > Options > Appearance > Colors and look for Highlighting > Block Matching in the list.

Cheers,
