Hi, OK I looked at that (and I’ve used this a lot in the past for my C# .Net work) but I do not know which specific C++ entry to adjust.
If I simply begin to edit an existing name, this odd highlighting kicks in, so it is the act of editing an existing name that seems to trigger this, and I have no idea what specific C++ entry this pertains to!
If I edit a C# file in a C# project it doesn’t do this, it does kind of select the name being edited but highlights it differently, the name gets surrounded in a dotted rectangle but the word is readable, slightly shaded but readable.

No worries. Due to some reason, Visual Studio sometimes randomly resets this specific color setting (it appears to be related to switching between the light and dark theme), but we never managed to reproduce it reliably, so we just showed its exact location in our documentation.
If you (or anyone else) discover a reliable way to reproduce this, feel free to post an update and we will look further into it.
