Highlighting the same words (variables) in the SQL editor


#1

Many code editors have it.

A double-click on a word (a variable name, a table name etc) and it gets highlighted in every place where it is mentioned in the text.

The screenshot is from Notepad++

This feature is mainly used when I need to know whether the word that I am focused on at the moment is used somewhere else near in the code.

Of course there is a workaround - F3 (Find Next), but having highlighting would be nice.

Can't agree more. Enhancement Request SQLNAV-1573 has been raised for it. :)
