Feature request: syntax highlighting on cursor line

Post by chris »

Hi Jussi,

A minor point I know but when the cursor line is highlighted, can there at least be an option to maintain normal syntax colors for text on that line? That is, having the cursor line highlighted would affect the background colors but not the foreground. I like being able to see where the cursor is at a glance, but I also like seeing keywords pop up in color as I type (or not, when my fingers slip... ).

cheers, Chris

Hi Chris,

My first impression is that the code changes required to achieve this feature might be quite considerable :(

But I have put the feature on the Zeus todo list just to see if it is possible.

Perhaps you could have the background color change one color darker.

OR

You could highlight the LINE NUMBER area rather than the LINE!

But while we are at it, could you make it so if you select the line number area it is the same a selecting the first character in the line (easier to drag that way.)
