Highlighting occurrences of identifier under caret

Is it possible to have WingIDE highlight every occurrence of the identifier that is currently under the caret? (Like what vscode does)

I'm on WingIDE Pro

Wing should do this automatically if you select the symbol, and also during searching. The Editor > Occurrences preferences can be used to set options for the behavior.

I see, you have to select the identifier first... Nice! I'd say I prefer this way to vscode's :D Thanks!
