I just installed AS7, and when I convert an AS6.2 project over to AS7 I notice that all of my calls to _delay_ms() appear in an italic font, different from the font for the rest of the code.  Can someone tell me what this means?

 

Thanks.

Google "visual assist italics" and you get eg this: https://docs.wholetomato.com/default.asp?W181

It's a feature. I like it 'cause it lets me know quickly that I haven't mistyped it.

Thanks Johan.  I can always count on you to know the obscure details.  I cant decide if I like it or not.  Torby has a point.  Maybe I should explore visual assist some more.  I'm not sure I like the double lines across the page of the line the cursor is on.  I am probably just getting old and don't like the new things I see in VS7 that are turned off in VS6.2.

 

Thanks again

If you don't like VA then turn it off.

In this case I only knew what to Google for.. ;-)
Toms spelling check is hit-or-miss, BTW. Only names from outside his own project files/directories will be italicized.

I'd much prefer if they'd use color rather than italic to emphasize the text.

I like VA!  I am just seeing new stuff in AS7 that was turned off in AS6.2.
