Highlighting

 

When a file is first opened the original found text is highlighted. If a secondary search is performed then that is also highlighted but in a different color. Highlighting can be switched on and off by either using the context menu or the short cut combinations Ctrl+Shift+O for original hits and Ctrl+Shift+C for secondary hits.

 

Where hits from the original and secondary search overlap the hit is highlighted in red.

 

 

Navigation

 

To move to each of the highlighted hits either use the context menu or press F3 (or Shift+F3 to move backwards). Navigation is always to the next highlighted match independent of whether that was from the original or secondary search. Therefore, to only move through the secondary search hits turn off the highlighting for the original search.
