Description

While working on a growing coding file, it's sometimes not clear where a specific variable is assigned a value. In Visual Studio, it's possible to place the cursor in the variable name, which causes the variable to be highlighted in the code. That way, it's easy and quick to see where you used that variable earlier. See the attached screenshot with an example of this useful feature.

Off course, in the PowerLanguage Editor I can use Ctrl - F and search for the variable name. However, that jumping to each location where that variable is used is sometimes more confusing then it's helpful, especially if that variable is used often.
