After updating RStudio color names are highlighted


After updating RStudio IDE to RStudio 2022.12.0+353 "Elsbeth Geranium" for Windows when I write an instruction in the source pane with color names the color name word is highlighted.

plot(1, col = "red")     # the word "red" is on a red background
plot(1, col = "blue")    # the word "blue" is on a blue background

I know I shouldn't post screen shots of code but the actual code is above, this is a post of a screen shot of what the RStudio IDE is displaying.

Hello @RuiBarradas ,

I also experience the same. Well, do you know how to change it back to "normal"?
Or are you also waiting for the answer? Thanks



@Anijaya, @Flm,
This has solved the problem, thanks!

One more follow-up issue. I ran into this problem after updating RStudio IDE. I did everything as told by the Windows installer, accepting all default settings. And it was the first time I saw the color names highlighted like above.
Is this behavior factory-made? And if so shouldn't it be reverted back to the previous behavior?
