Syntax hilighting bogs down in 4.8

Not sure if I’m the only one seeing this, but for example:

There is such a huge amount of stuff happening in the macros now, as of 4.8, that it seems Visual Studio simply can’t compile it correctly on the fly, when trying to build the “intellisense” info. So my syntax highlighting and word-completion just rarely works any more. The code itself is fine, because it builds and runs normally. Every once in a while, it does finally figure it out. But it’s rare. It’s really kind of painful to lose this functionality.

Highly Recommend Visual Assist X for this exact reason.

Intellisense has never really worked very well with large codebased like Unreals’, VAX does a much better job and has a suite of nice features too that speed up workflow.
