Remove CubeIDE editor margin TODO tags.

Does anyone know how to remove the tags that show in the margin to the left of the line numbers in the editor when you have a 'TODO' in a comment on the line? They inhibit my viewing of breakpoints on the line. I guess I could get rid of side comments, but it is existing code.

PS, are there any hints to find post labels for IDE questions?

The task tags are defined in:

Window > Preferences > C/C++ > Task Tags

If you delete the tags TODO and XXX, which are inserted by default, they are no longer marked in the source code. Incidentally, the tags are evaluated case insensitive and only when the respective C file has been saved.

BTW: the line markers are changed to a nicer small blue circle with a white tick with the help of DevStyle from the Eclipse market.

I haven't found a way to turn it off. I would just move the comment on it's own line.

@Karl Yamashita - Thanks Karl, I figured such. Eclipse has come a long way since I started using it in 2007 for sure. I am still not happy with the ability to detect breakpoints on a line in the margin. Wish users could make a bigger, perhaps colored red, indicator in that margin for a breakpoint. It isn't many pixels to determine the breakpoint active vs inactive or when you are actually stopped on that line in execution. All tools have their issues for sure... 

@Karl Yamashita - This works for me 🙂 :
