#56 Search with multiple highlight

Next Release

I think the following function would be very helpfull.

Assusme that there is a word or may be a variable.

When I double click that word to select it and right
click, I should get a menu in context menu like "find"
where, when I click that "find menu", epic editor
should either highlight all the lines containing that
(word or variable), or a new pane like navigator
should have the list of all the lines containing that
(word or variable) linked to that line.

    Are you aware of the Mark Occurrences feature (which you can
    enable in EPIC Preferences > Editor or using the tool bar
    button)? You click on a variable and all occurrences become
    highlighted as well as marked on the right margin of the
    editor (so you can jump between them).

    Yes, I know this feature. But what I am thinking is, if I
    do a search, I should be able to copy all those selected
    lines and paste it somewhere else.

    I am talking about the "Copy Bookmarked Lines" feature of
    the TextPad.
