Optimizing Your Editor

I often wonder why so many people do not take advantage of some of the useful features of the Visual Basic Editor. For example, one feature that I hardly see anyone use is syntax highlighting. Syntax highlighting allows you to change the background color or font color based on the type of function or object that the various syntax elements represent. Syntax highlighting is enabled by default; however, the default settings do not convey nearly as much information as you could convey by tweaking the settings a little further. Other than syntax highlighting, you can also customize the editor by changing fonts and font sizes and toggling a number of editor options on or off.
