I just had an idea for a feature for BBEdit, but I am wondering if perhaps this feature might already exist.
The idea is this: if you would select a text string that is not a language element (i.e. a variable name), then BBEdit would automatically highlight (perhaps in a different color) all the other instances of that same text string within active document windows. I thought of this because I love how Safari handles text searching: it grays out the background slightly and then shows highlighted areas over every instance of the found text. It would also be sweet if they had a colored arrow or something indicating if additional instances have been found in non-active windows or above/below the current scroll point in active windows.
Currently there is the "Find Selected Text" command (command-H) but what I am suggesting would occur automatically. There would be a preference to activate/deactivate this behavior, and also to enable/ disable the limit of whether it only operates on text strings that do not contain language elements, or whether it works on any text string.
Just a thought. :D I am wondering if a feature like this already exists. (I am still plumbing BBEdit's depths hehe).
