As there is now the highlight all occurrences macro, would it be feasable to have that functionality added to the find /find/replace dialogs as an option? in much the same was as vim does on *nix

I'm not sure which version add this feature, but it is definitely there in the find dialog in the current version.

I will look to also add it to the replace dialog.

That's it!. Thanks Jussi, I hadn't seen that option previously, just the options i primarily use 'whole word' and 'match case'

In the latest version there is a keyboard function that does this.

For the BriefEx keyboard mapping this is bound to the Ctrl+H (i.e. the H is for highlight) will run this feature.

That keyboard action is bound to the WordHighlightAny keyboard function.
