|Go to selection anchor after escape||The anchor is the offset where a selected range starts. When text is selected and you press the Esc key, this option determines if the caret moves to the anchor or end of the selected range.|
|Drag and drop text editing||Toggle the ability to edit text by dragging and dropping within the editor. This setting does not impact your ability to drop text that was dragged from outside the editor.|
|Automatic delimiter highlighting||Toggles automatic delimiter highlighting.|
|Highlight matching braces||Toggles highlight matching braces.|
|Track changes||Toggles the track changes feature.|
|Highlight active line||Toggles if the active line will be highlighted in the editor.|
|Perform code analysis on text changes||
This option toggles if code analysis is automatically performed on an edited document after the text is modified. Any changes to a document will invalidate the previous analysis results, so automatically updating the results after a change in the document will ensure the Error List is kept up-to-date. When this option is turned off, code analysis will be performed when you close the document or manually execute the operation using the Tools -> Perform Code Analysis for Current File command from the main menu.
Tip: Because the code analysis runs in the background while you are editing a document, this can cause performance issues on some machines. Those users who are experiencing poor performance while editing a document should consider turning this option off.
