Highlighting Words And Phrases: How to mark up words in red, green, yellow etc.
within the Depeche View text browser to structure the text display on the fly. highlighting words

You are surfing over text and want, for example, the word "static" highlighted everywhere in a special color? Within Depeche View, do this:

- point the mouse cursor at the word "static".

- press CONTROL, release CONTROL, press CONTROL, release CONTROL, WITHOUT moving the mouse, all within a second. (a "double control" move).

Instantly, all visible "static" words will be highlighted.

unhighlighting words

Repeat the above move on the same word to switch off the highlight.

You can highlight any number of words, however the number of available colors is limited.

highlighting character precise phrases

Let's look at this example:

   FooController::testBar(char *pszCandy)
   FooController::testBar(char *pszCandy)
   FooController::testBar(char *pszCandy)

Now, if you want to highlight all the "char candys", whatever that is, but how do you do that? Double Control on "char" only highlights "char".

Follow this slightly complicated process:

- move the mouse cursor onto "c" of "char" and concentrate.

- press CONTROL, release CONTROL, press CONTROL and KEEP IT PRESSED,


and do this all within a second.

the "c" should be highlighted.

if it doesn't, you were too slow.

- move the mouse slowly over to "y" of "Candy". don't panic, you have endless time now.

- when done, RELEASE the mouse button.

- then RELEASE the CONTROL key.

With this "OneAndAHalve Control Presses", you can highlight any phrase you like.

word highlight case sensitivity

If you mark the word "foobar" for highlight, will "FooBar" be highlighted as well? By default, yes. But you can change that by selecting "mode" and then "case highlights", which toggles highlight case sensitivity independent from the search case sensitivity.
