Yup! That’s a useful feature anyway, can you tell me what the keyboard shortcut is for “jump to matching bracket”.
However, I use EmEditor as my favorite editor for writing makefiles, and there are lots and lots of cases where brackets are inside double quotes. So, please give user a choice instead of dropping the old good feature. EmEditor has done a great job of providing options to various user preferences, so why not adhere to that good tradition.
CTRL + ] to jump to the matching bracket.
If you can disable single/double quotation marks in the Highlight (2) tab of Properties, and then all matching brackets will be highlighted.
