Synopsis: [er] EiffelStudio editor lost with verbatim strings in large class text files

Description
It happens often that when we have a verbatim string in a large class text file in the editor, Eiffel Studio is lost: everything which follows this verbatim string is wrongly considered as part of the string (with the same color highlighting), and dropping a feature which is declared below this verbatim string (or clicking on the corresponding name in the Features panel) will not move the cursor to the text of this feature (in fact it does not move the cursor at all if I remember correctly). If I remember correctly, recompiling from scratch does not solve the issue, although I did not check recently.

It does not work in that case, which is not a surprise since we get the problem even when compiling from scratch.

When you have such editor trouble, can you try to reload the tab using Ctrl+R , and tell us if this solves (temporary) the trouble or not.

I confirm that the problem occurs even when compiling from scratch.
