    Is there any way to turn off the highlights that are left over from the find facility "Highlight all items found"?

    Editing the text after the find has resulted in the situation with the yellow mess all over the place as shown.

    Many thanks as always for any help.

      In menu View click on Highlight All Selected which is checked when strings are highlighted from a find command.

          I wish this switch was in the Find dialog box or that there was mention of the switch in the View menu in the Find command "Highlight all items found" description in the online Help! I use this feature rarely, I am constantly forgetting where it is and I can't find it in the online Help.

            Hi, you can simply highlight all occurrences of the current word (or the selection using UE 22.10) by CTRL+. Repeat this on another word to dismiss all highlights. Quick and simple :)

            And there is the check box Highlight all items found in Find dialog. If you don't see it then you have to click on the button with gear wheel icon below the radio button In Current file/Selected text/all open files to show advanced options.

              There are offered since UltraEdit for Windows v28.00 and UEStudio v21.00 at Advanced - Settings or Configuration - Search - Advanced for Highlight all occurrences of selected word the configuration settings:
              • Match case
              • Match whole word only
                • ... when selection is whole word only
              The highlighting can be done also configurable with just double clicking on a word or with double clicking on a word with additionally holding Shift key. It is also possible to configure that double clicking on a word does not trigger highlighting of all occurrences of the selected word at all.

              The settings give a user the full control on which strings are highlighted on double clicking a word without or with Shift hold or executing the command Highlighted all selected from ribbon/menu View or on pressing Ctrl+. without or with having something currently selected and no strings currently highlighted.

                Hi,

                it's been a while, but:
                Is it only with the newer version of UE that this is easily possible with ESC when the focus is on the document?

                Greetings
