If you have the matching bracket outside of the current view, jEdit won't mark the matching bracket.

This is particularly annoying if you have a very long block, as you won't be able to find the closing bracket using this option.

This used to work fine (at least until 2.6). But it's broken on 3.0pre5.

    Oops, this should have gone to "text area and syntax packages".

    The bracket matching only searches as far as the currently visible lines. This is to improve performance. To go to a bracket matching the current one (regardless if it is visible or not) press Control+].
