I do not think so.
Use Font&Colors ->Syntax -> Error. Have a look at the
following example. Does it work for you this way? If yes then please
close the RFE.

In the font->color dialog box, there is no specific

My goal is to look at my editor and know instantly from the color
of the font that I have a (many) problem(s) and where it(they)
is(are). The way things are now, I have to *manually* figure out
which is a static import and which is an unknown symbol. When I am
going along authoring code, it's not such a problem but if I cut
and paste example code or fragments that someone else gives me,
it's a pain.
What I am thinking is this unknown==static thing is an leaking
abstraction / artifact of the algorithm used internally to
determine what color to color the font. I imagine it starts at
least scope- a local variable and failing that proceeds outwards
in scope. When it comes to static or global scope, it gives up and
uses the color-font of the last place it tried- static scope.
Obviously, just a guess.
Anyway, it would be great to have a special font-color available
to indicate "unknown symbol" . I am going to file an RFE
