Sorry for an obvious one, but I'm using Texmaker as my editor and the syntax highlighting has broken down after adding a tikzpicture and is making it very hard to actually see the content. (Everything is green as if it were mathematical notation). Does anyone know how to turn it off?

Open TeXmaker File menu --> Options-->Configure-->Editor--> Colors and change according to your liking based on color codes. Just for update: TeXmaker 4.0.1 dated March 16 2013 is available now
