Does this also work with formatted code? for example cascades that span
multiple lines.

Okay, I see your problem.
Do you usually stick to one form of highlighting, either on or off, for all
your Workspaces?
Because if this is the case, I would suggest to save whether the user wants
to enable code styling whenever Workspace>>#toggleStyling is called and to
just use the saved state whenever a new Workspace is created, instead of
relying on one default.
This would allow people like me who almost always want syntax highlighting
to just enable it once and everyone else to just keep it at the default.

Kind regards,
