An alpha version of PyScripter 2.3 is out at the PyScripter project page. This version contains a number of new features, about some of which I will blog here. One new feature is the “Highlight selected word” option which is on by default. With this option on, if you select a word by double-clicking or by the relevant editor command, other instances of the word are highlighted. Here is what it looks like:
As soon as you start typing the highlight goes off (as with the Highlight search text command). You can also hide the highlight by depressing the Highlight search text button in the Find toolbar or using the command shortcut Shift+Ctrl+H.
