remove 'Find Points of Use' highlighting after locating relevant code

  • retag add tags

'Find Points of Use' highlights the relevant source code in the editor. Unfortunately I cant seem to easily remove this highlighting, which becomes annoying after I have located what I am looking for. One way I can remove this highlighting is to search for something... inconvenient and hacky. Is there an easy way to remove the Points of Use highlighting? Thanks!

I am running Wing Pro on Linux, in case that matters.

Closing the search in the Uses tool will un-highlight them. So will selecting any word and then un-selecting. You can also turn off the feature with the Editor > Occurrences > Highlight Occurrences preference.

Thanks for the response! Just FYI, closing the Uses dialog (via F1, its in the bottom Toolbox) doesnt make the highlights disappear for me. Today double-clicking on other text does make the highlights disappear, yesterday and previous that wasnt happening...

You need to close the search with the X inside the Uses tool. Just hiding the tool won't do it, particularly if the search is still running. The search still running is also one possible explanation for not removing marks if you select/deselect, although it's certainly also possible there's some bug with this.

OK, thanks for that tip!
