Editor does not reparse my source file fast enough to highlight errors when I am typing.
Editor does not reparse the source file you are editing after each keystroke. There is a delay, set to 2000ms by default, which must elapse after the last keystroke until reparse is done and error highlighting updated.
You can change this delay in Tools/Options -> Advanced Options -> Options/Editing/Java Sources -> Automatic Parsing Delay. Try decreasing the delay for example to 500ms. Be warned, however, that reparsing may be done too frequently and your machine may become overloaded, depending on the speed of your typing and the speed of your hardware. If you encounter responsiveness problems in editor after decreasing the delay, increase it back again.
