I use notepad++ to do debugging of complex nests of conditions. So when I tried changing the styling of the Brace Highlight Style to a more louder color, i was confused why it wasn't taking effect.

I took this advice from the github site. So I made global style the same as with the Brace Highlight Style, but still same effect.

Tried restarting notepad++ and still the same.


Turns out, you need to disable the Enable global foreground color and Enable global background color options off:

go to Menu > Style Configurator > Global Styles > Global override

for it to take effect.
