Is it possible to add more elements to the VA's syntax color page? For example, I would like to display enumerations and macros in a slightly different color, but VA only have one color for both macros and enums.

The color settings in Visual Studio have a lot of different items for C++. Maybe you can use these colors for VA's enhanced syntax coloring?

In the same idea (I don't know if I should open a new topic for this): is it possible to distinguish function-like variables such as function pointer, std::function, lambdas, (... anything with operator())?

I would have to look up Lambda's again to be sure, but I seem to remember that these come in named and unnamed varieties, and some of the examples I have seen are effectively "a function within a function", so not something with a name where we could highlight the name.

If we can define a sensible rule for grouping these things together I can put in a feature request, to see what our developers make of it.

Can you detect if the type of a variable has at least one operator() whatever the parameters are?

It is a clear and simple rule, I have put in a feature request to see what our developers make of this. Just don't be surprised if nothing happens very quickly, we are not rushing to add more colour groups at the moment:

For code understanding, to prevent overlooking errors, a simple to identify reserved keyword that I would like a special color to be attributed to: return

This is an idea we are toying with, but are not yet sure of the best way of approaching. Colouring the return keyword is one approach:

case=29132

Thank you for the implementation. Unfortunately, it comes too late for me. My maintenance expired in May and due to your new subscription policy I will not extend the maintenance any longer.
