Is to be able to:
1. press ctrl-space and set a mark
2. move my cursor around screen and have text highlighted
IDEAmacs is a great start, but OpenAPI doesn't seem to support the ability to highlight text like when you hold 'shift'.
Naturally, I first tried SelectionModel.setSelection, but, um that doesn't do any highlighting. And, I'm not even sure it does anything.
Next, I tried MarkupModel.addRangeHighlighter(), but with no documentation on any of those methods, I don't know what layer it should be on or what several other options are. I got it to highlight, kindof, but it only boxes the region on the line that the cursor is on, but if I move, it will change that line to the color I set in TextAttributes.
I could almost live with that, but it seems to save the file every freaking second and so if I delete a region, I can't undo it!
Is there any documentation that someone can point me to to show me how to highlight text EXACTLY AS IF I WAS HOLDING DOWN THE SHIFT KEY.
