Highlight all occurrences of the selected keyword automatically.

I want to know whether there is a way to make wingide automatically highlight all occurrences of the selected keyword. Any tips will be appreciated.

Regards, Zhao

It should do this automatically, as controlled by the Editor > Occurrences preferences. In Wing Pro, you can also right-click on a symbol and use Find Points of Use to find all uses of a variable, whether or not in the current editor.

I want to trigger this feature once I put the cursor on a symbol, instead of double-click on it.

Edit > Select > Select More will do it and that's Ctrl-UpArrow in the default keyboard personality. In general Select More/Less are useful for all kinds of things.
