is it possible (via syntax highlighting ?) to highlight the currently selected string like this:
Seen that in Eclipse or as above in Notepad++
Thanks from a 10+ year UltraEdit user.
No, also just released UE v188.8.131.526 does not have such a feature. I guess most users use the existing capabilities and therefore have not sent a feature request email to IDM for such a feature.Hector wrote:Does it now exist (1 year + later)?
It's available from the version 17.00.CFQueb wrote:Please, add this feature soon. Notepad++ has this so long time. Will be nice and useful if clicking a word UE highlight all occurrence automatically (not using the Find command).
IDM wrote:The persistent "highlight all" can be invoked on the word under the caret either via Shift + Double Click or via the hotkey Ctrl + . (period). There is also a new "Highlight All Selected" toolbar icon which can be used to enable/disable persistent highlighting - this also works with the "Highlight All Items Found" item in the Find dialog.
While single clicking in NP++ is convenient, it really isn't the best solution for an editor that handles huge files. A global highlight on a huge file could really bog down the editor. The Ctrl+Period solution works well enough for me.CFQueb wrote:Will be nice and useful if clicking a word UE highlight all occurrence automatically (not using the Find command).
