Highlight all instances of text selected in editor

Post by peter_mclean@dodo.com.au » Thu Nov 24, 2011 11:19 am

I use the Notepad++ editor to identify all instances of the use of a variable so that I can track whether the variable is for example, passed correctly between functions, etc. To do this I simply double click my mouse on the first instance of the variable and all instances of the variable are highlighted in green in the editor. Is it possible to add this feature to the next release of Primalscript?

Thanks Alex. I look forward to the feature. Currently I switch between Primalscript and notepad++ to use the feature. I find it to be a thorough way of cross-checking the correct use of variables as well as the correct use of variables in the right syntax and programmatic context.
