Find keyword

Ctrl-Shift-F7 highlights variables. Is it possible to hightlight keywords?
Like I want to find all "return"s in a method.

It says so right in the status bar when you press ctrl-shift-f7, but I
guess that's an easy thing to miss.

as you point out - yes it does show on the status bar. and yes I did
miss it.
On my machine @ 1024x1280 that message takes up about 2% (at most) of the
vertical screen space -- and is often hidden by the window task bar (that I
use in pop-over mode)
All of which is to say that -- as obnoxious as it might sound-- it might be
better to have a dialogue come up with the message and a check box that you
check in order to turn off that behaviour.
just a thought

Or simply a menu item for turning off highlights. Although I don't know
where it should be. In the View menu, because that's where you'd be
likely to look for items that affect the current display, or in the
Search menu, because that's where "Highlight usages in file" is?

Or at least it used to be there. I might be blind, but I can't find
it anymore. It's under Search in the keymap editor but in the Search
menu I can only find "Find usages" and "Find usages in file".
