Sets whether plugin highlights brackets.
MBS Plugin can watch you typing text and show the text positions. Optionally we can then highlight matching brackets when selecting those. This includes (), [], {} and even check them within strings to help with SQL statements.

Text positions are only enabled by the plugin if the advanced tools in FileMaker preferences are enabled, so they don't show up for ordinary people just installing FileMaker Pro.
