highlight appearances of selection

Post by dman » Thu Nov 22, 2012 3:00 pm

Hi,

the feature can be found in some IDEs/editors and I really miss it in Ranorex (or, if it's there I have not found it). The usecase is simple: when the user makes a selection (e.g. variable/method name) all appearances of the selection are automatically highlighted (in the current file).

Excepting the case when the feature is already in and I did not find it (heeeeelp), are there any plans in this direction?

All the best,
D.

could make a poll on this one; I'm pretty sure it would make easier the lifes of many others. Not to mention, to me it seems like a low hanging fruit for you guys

thank you for taking it into consideration!

All the best,
D.

Hello,

Unfortunately, there are no news concerning this feature request.
There are plans to implement this in a future release but not in our next version.
