This semantic error checking is primarily applied to step pattern parameters, or rather values that you specify for them as you write the story. So for example if you are trying to make use of an existing step that was created earlier which has one parameter of type Number and if you were trying to specify a String value for that parameter the editor would highlight this error and show a relevant error message when you drag your mouse over the error icon shown on the left to where the error was found.

A more complex example involving a misformatted tabular parameter field value on row one and a missing tabular parameter value on row two:
