You mean, SlickEdit Comment Coloring feature!  SlickEdit now provides different assignable colors for line comments, block comments, and documentation comments. In C#, we interpet // to be a line comment and /// to be a documentation comment.

You can change the colors by selecting Tools > Options > Appearance > Colors. Look in the Comments node.

You can change how SlickEdit interprets comments by selecting Tools > Options > Languages > .. > C# > Color Coding. Then select the Comments tab. There you can alter the definition of comments for the language. If "Used for API documentation" is checked we will apply the "Documentation Comment" color.

No, I mean SlickEdit Truly Amazing Coloring Feature! ;)

Seriously, the default Symbol Coloring scheme is a bit overwhelming. It's not there to say that this is how we think you should use the feature, but as a way to show a variety of rules that you might use. As it is often the case, it is easier to delete rules than to add them.

In the next release, we may be able to extend this system to allow individual letter colors depending on the kind of symbol it is in. So, I want 'b' to be green, but only if it's in a public member function. Oh, and use Garamond for that while you're at it.    :)

Will we be able to color all the serifs to the background color, and turn MS Serif into MS Sans Serif on the fly?
