SOLVED Variables no longer coloured or showing up in Code Completion


There should be an image attached to show what I mean.

Instance variables, local variables, and custom scripts no longer show up for me in their assigned colours.
And yes, I checked my preferences, and nothing has changed there.

Additionally, none of those show up in Code Completion either. In-built functions are still there, though.
Global variables don't appear in Code Completion, but are still coloured.

I recently got a new Windows device and have moved my projects there from an Apple device. This is my first time coding on this device, so I don't know if that caused the problem somehow.

Does anybody know what caused this, or how I can fix it?

Also, I hope this thread is in the right place...

EDIT: This seemed to fix itself when I next opened GMS2.
