For a declaration that is declared via macros, how can I see the "real" declaration name?

Sometimes macros are used to declare functions, namespaces, or variables. To see how a macro was expanded in the source code to introduce a declaration use the Navigator window (Ctrl-7) and put the cursor on the macro-based declaration. The Navigator will select the corresponding language declaration.

Starting from NB 6.7 there are also Macro View and macro tooltip features. See Exploring Macros in C/C++ Projects.
