IntelliJ: Automating Highlighting based on same keyword

Hello,

I have been using IntelliJ for several months, and I would say: its the best of all IDEs. Yes, I have tried JBuilder, Netbeans 4 and Eclipse.

Just one thing that I miss from IDEA:
Is there any feature that automate highlighting the same keyword? In Eclipse 3 you can do that using "mark accurences" button in toolbar. I have searched through the Setting of IDEA but found nothing. Have I missed something? Or is that not yet implemented?

One more thing: In Eclipse you do so, that through the mouse hover, the info / javadoc will be shown automatically. In IntelliJ you can also do so through "Ctrl+Q". I want this automatically just when I hover it. Can I do that?

Thanks in advance.

Position on keyword, Control + W (keyword selected), Alt + F3
(incremental search), Up / Down buttons will go through occurences.

Hi Maxim,

Thanks for the reply.

For the highlighting, I have found something useful that what I meant: ctrlshiftF7

For the javadoc duríng mouse hover: yes with ctrl it works.
Just can I also to see the complete javadoc, just like in Eclipse?

Yes, Ctrl-Shift-F7 is what you want. Press Esc to remove the highlights.

No, the only way to see the full javadoc is to use Quick Doc (Ctrl-Q).
Ctrl-hover works for most purposes, I find, and use Ctrl-Q when that's
not enough info. I've never yearned to see the javadoc on hover,
although I have asked for a keyboard shortcut for the Ctrl-hover
feature, which there isn't. (My suggestion was that simply holding Ctrl,
without moving the mouse, would show the info for the identifier at the
caret.)

The (admittedly unhelpfully named) FunkySearch plugin will highlight multiple search strings (and regexs). You can choose your highlight colors too.
