Highlighting of searching words

Post by sunamo » Fri Nov 16, 2018 5:56 pm

Hello VoidTools team,

thank you for your excellent app.

One desire - add support for highlighting searched term similar as is for example in Google Docs:

Compare to:

It will be useful in bigger and complicated files.

Thank you!

That already exist since a long time.
From http://www.voidtools.com/support/everything/ini/
Add the following in your Ini:
show_highlighted_search_terms=1

show_highlighted_search_terms is to Show highlighted search terms in file/folder names.

but @sunamo is asking for highlighting searched term in content (in preview bar)

The preview display isn't controlled by Everything
so I guess that will not be possible.

I have on my TODO list to add my own text preview handler, so this definitely possible for a future version of Everything.
