Semantic highlighting

To understand how the data flow through the code at a glance, Highlighting each variable/parameter with its own color can be helpful.

Clion Theme

Colors are kept unique inside the body of a function or lambda, and identifiers with the same name are assigned the same color.

Clion theme

To try it on, turn on semantic highlighting in Editor Color & Fonts Language Defaults.

The interface theme defines the appearance of windows, dialogs, buttons, and all visual elements of the user interface. By default, CLion uses the Darcula theme, unless you changed it during the first run.

Clion Material Theme

The interface theme is not the same as the color scheme, which defines the colors, fonts, and syntax-highlight for various text resources: the source code, search results, and so on.

Change the UI theme

  1. In the Settings/Preferences dialog Ctrl+Alt+S, select Appearance & Behavior Appearance.

  2. Select the UI theme from the Theme list:

    • IntelliJ Light: Traditional light theme for IntelliJ-based IDEs

    • Darcula: Default dark theme

    • High contrast: Theme designed for users with color vision deficiency
