As you can see on this screenshot, there are two locations in the same file, with copy/paste code inside the very same method, yet the same variable is colored differently: ".OperationData" on the right side of the screen.

That is odd. Is this a fragile colouring problem, or is it fairly stable, as you move between the top and bottom pane of code?

C# or C++ code? How long are the lines of code, approximately? I can see the vertical dotted line, so I assuming we are only looking at 100 characters long or there abouts.

So far no sign of this here.

My first thought is that VA takes a moment or two to apply its colouring when new code appears, so its possible that is a factor here.

Very unstable, changes with scrolling (horz+vert) and clicking, the OperationData exists as a member and as a Type (i know VA has problems with that). Still, i'd expect the same error in both panes.
C#, lines ~150 chars.


I dont think you can repro that without my whole project. In this case I really cant pass that on. So, just "make the error stable"

We are working to make colouring more stable and reliable, so hopefully these improvements will help with this, and at least let us pin it down more reliably if it keeps on happening.
