Change current line highlight

When you click any text in the editor, your current line becomes highlighted.

How do I change this highlight?
Thanks.

Hi there,

Settings | Editor | Colors & Fonts | General | Caret Row

Make sure you create your own color scheme first (by using "Save As.." button) as you cannot edit bundled ones.

Thanks!

Also, is there a way to make backspace stop devouring the entire line?
I just want it to act the way shift-tab does. I typed Shift+Tab into the search in settings, but it doesn't show up.

It would also be nice if Delete caused a line to jump to the next indent, rather than a single character back.


A third issue I just found: Some of my variables don't highlight in other places in the text, when I double-click them. Can I fix this? Needing to type control+f every time is an annoyance. :)
Example, in this:

setAttribute('id', "qarowcontainer" + id);


This does not highlighted in other places:

qarowcontainer 



(By the way, it's very interesting the way that copy and paste worked out.. lol)
Good day.

Settings | Editor | General | Smart Keys | Backspace smart indent

Delete works with characters. So -- use tabs instead of spaces. Currently there is no option available to treat xx spaces as tab/indent.

Install BrowseWordAtCaret plugin and check "Settings | Editor | General | Appearance" for "Browse Word At Caret" settings after restarting IDE. Colors can also be changed (you already know where -- just look for "BrowseWordAtCaret")

Example, in this:

Bad example: I see one string occurence and one that look like variable. For your info: string (text) is not the same as variable.

phpstorm is very impressively customizable.

You cannot search for actions using text values of keyboard shortcuts.

"Settings | Keymap" -- it has special button (next to search field) that allows you to search by keyboard shortcuts -- by actually pressing those keys.

I want to change the color of the current line highlighted but not finding the Colors & Fonts | General | Caret Row in Settings | Editor.  I am using the Intellij Ultimate 2018.1 version.

Thanks,

Rishabh
