In Code Inspection tool, there is a checker "Overriding function without `override` specifier".
It is an amazing feature for supporting obsolete projects.
But it became annoying when `final` keyword is used.
In my code:
- all virtual functions have `virtual` prefix;
- all overridden function have `override` prefix;
If function have to be final I write it fully:
virtual void Foo() override final;

But this checker says "Remove redundant `virtual` and `override`" for lines with `final`.
Can you add some settings to not show such warnings?

That makes sense, I have put in a feature request to see what our developers make of this.

For now, have you considered placing the virtual methods into a region, this way you can easily tell which ones are virtual, since they are grouped together. VA Outline reports regions in C++, allowing you an easy way of identifying them:

#pragma region Virtual members
#pragma endregion Virtual members

It is my preference. I have an argument, but it is weak.

When I open any header file, I want to see all virtual functions. If the keyword `virtual` is used - I can observe quickly such functions, because `virtual` is placed at the beginning of each function and aligned.
It is especially useful when the declaration does not fit to one screen, and to see `override`/`final` you need to scroll right.

About `override`+`final`, actually, I think there is no benefits to combine these 2 keywords, and it is fine if `final` replaces `override`.

Is there a reason you don't want to remove the "virtual" and "override" keywords? You don't need them, since you have specified "final".

I am wondering if this is your preference, or if there is an actual reason you need both keywords.
