Highlighted text doesn't show matches

I'm not doing a search, I'm just double-clicking a variable or piece of text, and it used to show other matches highighted (in a different color), but now it's not. Search results can be outside of the scope of a large function or code block, which can be cumbersome.

It used to work, and NetBeans and Eclipse do it, so I'm not sure what happened.

I've turned off other highlighting since it's overboard in PHPStorm, but I'm not sure which attribute to re-enable it on.

This feature is still there... you can try changing the color used for highlighting in Settings | Editor | Colors & Fonts | General --> "Identifier under caret" & "Identifier under caret (write)"

I checked it and it's already set with backgrounds, yet when I highlight text, it doesn't highlight matches. It will only highlight if I then hit Ctrl+F (which opens the search box).
