I'm really new to latex so please excuse my cluelessness. I'm using the subcaption package to make subfigures in my doccument like so:

\usepackage{caption}
\usepackage{subcaption}

\begin{document}

\begin{figure}[ht]
\begin{subfigure}[b]{0.45\textwidth}
    \includegraphics[width=\textwidth]{images/1.png}
    \caption{Subcap1}
    \label{fig:1}
\end{subfigure}
\begin{subfigure}[b]{0.45\textwidth}
    \includegraphics[width=\textwidth]{images/2.png} 
    \caption{Subcap2}
    \label{fig:2}
\end{subfigure}
\caption{Cap}
\label{fig:3}
\end{figure}

\end{document}

This compiles fine, but in the texstudio editor, the \begin{subfigure} and \end{subfigure} are highlighted as "unrecognized command". I have tried activating the caption, subcaption, subfig and subfigure cwl files at Options > Completion but this doesn't remove the highlight.

While this doesn't affect the compiling, it is rather annoying. Am I missing something or incorrectly using the packages?

    Welcome to LaTeX! Welcome to TeX.SX! This question is probably better suited to the developers of TeXStudio, or perhaps one of their mailing lists or forums. Perhaps someone here might be able to here, but this isn't strictly related to TeX or LaTeX. – JP-Ellis Feb 23 '16 at 12:27

Save this as subcaptionTemp.cwl in ~/.config/texstudio/ or %APPDATA%\texstudio\!
