In C++, even after setting Tools | Options | Text Editor | C/C++ | Formatting | Enumerate Comment Tasks to True, comments that contain a token present in the list at Tools | Options | Environment | Task List | Tokens do not display unless the Token in question is followed immediately with a colon character ( : ). In previous versions, no such requirement was present.

Duplication steps entered below.

I have also seen <> but that indicates the problem occurs in VB.NET, and the resolution is listed as Roslyn, which I am given to understand will not affect native C++.
