Filter tool expression box colour coding of expressions



We have recently upgraded to 18.3 and noticed that the Filter tool expression box has lost its colour coding of expression elements. The Formula tool (which still has the 18.2 look and feel) however still has the old colour coding.


It would be great if the colour coding could be included for all tools with expression editing boxes.


Examples attached for clarity.



17 - Castor

I liked the old color coding as well. Notice how the comment is much more noticeable on the formula tool.




6 - Meteoroid

Please re-instate the colour coding for the filter tool it was so much easier to read.
