a very good enhancement request
So there's no such feature yet, as I thought. Do we have any chance to see that in the upcoming (someday) 4.2EA?
There's a chance, sure. is it actually 'on the list?' - No.
We're doing work on the actual parser, and one of its primary feature/exploits - the formatter. There's no reason we couldn't extend the editor to do what you want here.
That's some really good news, parser really needed a revamp for a long time, especially when it comes to nested functions. Maybe you'll be able to re-add breadcrumbs or even finally implement rowtype autocomplete, too
Not much to discuss further, then, I'll trust you to not forget about if highlighting once more urgent stuff is taken care of.

I'll probably forget. That's why I suggested you submit an enhancement request, either to My Oracle Support or as a new entry at The Exchange, sqldeveloper.oracle.com
We've already fixed the nested functions formatting for v4.2 - be sure to send over any other formatter irregularities you want addressed - as new threads
