Possible issue Link.

On the WinEdt interface:

  1. Open the option window.
  2. go to option interfaces.
  3. In the left part, open: Highlighting: Colors, Keywords,...
  4. Right click on Switches and click on Open. Then check if you have this SWITCHS

If the commands are still not underlined after reset, I suggest you follow the response given the previous Link.

"Add only BACKGROUND_COLOR="xclEnvBk" in the section of switches.ini. The rest of the setting from $$ are for multiline backgrounds. And don't forget to load the script. "
