New Ctrl-Shift-F7 (highlight usages in file) behavior

Is anyone else disturbed by the change in functionality of this in 896?

I've never had the habit of selecting the thing I wanted to highlight
usages for before pressing ctrl-shift-f7, so I didn't even notice the
difference.

Do you mean where if you have an expression selected, Ctrl-Shift-F7 will
highlight all other ocurrences of that expression? Personally, I think
it's brilliant and I don't see how it affects the old functionality?

Ciao,
Gordon

Could you be more specific? What about the new behavior are you talking about.

I haven't noticed any impediment to my workflow yet. The new text search ability is cool, though I haven't found it useful yet.

If you have some text selected in editor when pressing CtrlShiftF7 then
usages of that text will be higlighted and browseable by F3 and Shift-F3.

that's the only change? Then no, I'm not disturbed by it.

I mean that I can no longer say "highlight only usages of this member in CODE,
not in comments or strings". Bad example, but: say I have a variable called
"run", it highlights the letters "run" in comments, strings, etc.

You actually can, you just have to remember not to select the word now (more precisely, you must not have anything selected). If you just place the cursor on it, then it works like before.

The new behavior only occurs when you have a selection. It's case sensitive, too, which I haven't decided whether I like yet. Maybe, I just haven't played with it enough.
