Syntax Formatting and Styles

Syntax Formatting is an important Source Insight feature that renders information in a dense, yet pleasing and useful way.

Source Insight uses information gathered from its parsers to format source code. Identifiers can be displayed in different fonts or font sizes, along with a variety of effects such as bold and italics.

Formatting is applied with “styles”. A style is a set of formatting properties. For example, a style may specify bold + italic. You can edit each style’s formatting properties with the Style Properties command. See also “Style Properties”.

There are several pre-defined styles. You can also add your own. The styles are stored in the configuration file.
