This is pretty simple; I love syntax coloring, this helps a lot to read code, just as visual assist does in the find results window, the object browser or the navigation bar...

But the syntax coloring is missing in the Call Stack window and the Breakpoints window ("Function" column), where it would be extremely useful. When having a lot of long function names with namespaces and lots of params, this apparently simple feature would be really really appreciated.

Which IDE are you using? I am not seeing a function column in the breakpoints window, even in VS2022, and I am not seeing any obvious way of turning one on either.

We are considering applying colouring to the Call Stack window. Which interestingly hardly ever seems to come up, so it is nice to see someone else ask about this.

Great! I'm glad to know that the feature is being considered. I must say it's been quite a while since I've been dying to see those windows colored, so this upgrade will be super welcome from my side.

I'm on regular VS2019 (and I'm pretty sure that VS2022 has the same Breakpoint Function feature). Please see attached screen capture to see the "Function" column I'm talking about and how to enable it.

EDIT: drive link as image uploading seems to not be working properly :/

That is embarrassingly obvious. I was trying to right click the column headers, to show more columns, which is the normal method Windows uses, and totally missed that big button. A very reasonable idea, I have put in a feature request for this:

Yai! Thanks a lot! I'll wait eagerly for this feature (along with the callstack coloring one (case=52400)
