Inactive code

If the option is enabled, the editor dims background and text for code blocks outside of current syntax scope. The current syntax scope is defined by cursor position.

This option works only for documents, which have code blocks in mixed syntaxes, like HTML/PHP/ASP documents, where you can have blocks in HTML, in CSS, in JavaScript, PHP etc.

The option can be set as for specific document in View → Editor (file specific) → Inactive Code or for all documents of specific syntax.

Images below shows how this works for HTML document.
