# Brace-mismatch error recognition in Texstudio?

I've been trying to find in Texstudio the ability in Texlipse in recognizing brace matching errors, but no success so far.

In Texlipse whenever a single brace is in your document a red line is drawn underneath it which decreases error handling time. Take this little code for example

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{amsmath}

\begin{document}

\begin{align}
a &= 1\frac{3}{2}}\\ % "}" after {2} is extra
b &= 2\frac{3}{4}
\end{align}

\end{document}


In Texstudio you can only become aware of the error, if the cursor is placed after or befor the brace. Is there such an option in it? Is it manually possible to add this capability to it?

As you noted, automatic brace-matching detection is currently only possible within the context of the cursor. However, you can manually trigger a search for a mismatch by Idefix -> Parenthesis -> Find Mismatch. The default keyboard shortcut is Ctrl+Shift+P,M.
