Draft View

The Draft View command on the View menu toggles the draft view mode on and off. When draft mode is on, almost all syntax formatting is suppressed, except for color changes.

All text is displayed using the “Draft View” style, which can be edited with the Style Properties dialog box. The “Draft View” style is preset to use a monospaced font (Courier New). See also “Style Properties”.

The Syntax Formatting features of Source Insight are powerful, but sometimes you need to see how text will line up in another editor or in a simple display mode when only a single font is used. Draft mode is useful for quickly switching your display to a basic monospaced font display. This is particularly useful if you are using spaces instead of tab characters to line columns up.

When draft mode is active, it overrides the settings of the Preferences: Syntax Formatting and Syntax Decorations dialog boxes.
