How to make it stop highlighting word matches?


#1

Sorry, I searched hard and couldn’t find an answer.

I just upgraded to 12.5.0.99 (ok, we’re a little slow sometimes). Now Toad has this behavior where when you select an identifier in the editor it highlights all other instances of that identifier. I hate that.

I’ve searched and dug through the options menus 'til I’m blue in the face. Please, someome tell me how to turn that off.

Well, that certainly makes it less obtrusive, but I don’t see how it changes the behavior.

Yeah, I see what you mean.

@david, regardless you are saying about highlight … this may be a nice feature request … something other interested me in your post.

You say that 12.5 is somehow slower … this is not true from mine point of experience (and trust me I have it working with client’s toad a lot) …

In many times this is related with “sqewed” profile settings … so for the begging could you close toad and rename current profile directory (check for path from Utilities|Copy User settings) and restart toad and see if performance gained.

If is (what I really think) then try to exclude some files from profiles until you find problematic one that make Toad run slower.

Hope this helps

Cheers

Damir, sorry I was confusing. :slight_smile: No, 12.5 is not slower. What I meant is that our company does not always update software in a timely manner. Overall, and so far, I like 12.5 better - except for this editor thing.
