While rich comments are neat in source code, I kinda don't want them in (XML) config files - ie. files with the extension *.xml and *.config
One of my config files contains a set of connection strings, and all but one are commented out; so if I have to switch between them i can just comment one and uncomment the other.
With rich comments however, it looks like this:
The problem here is that both the word "connection_string" and the database name "DB_Test", "DB_Stage" etc. contain an underscore - not to make it pretty and underline, but because it (somewhat) makes sense for naming.
Similarly, this also happens (a lot more frequently) in Oracle connection strings since they like using underscores for combined words.
For that, I'd like to propose a feature that lets me enable (or disable) this for specific file types (or extensions).
Also, while writing this (and replacing some of the strings in there), it happened multiple times that clicking into the line did not revert the rich formatting. Even after editing the line, the underlining persisted and moved the caret off-by-one due to the hidden underscore.
But this should probably in a ticket of its own.
