Description

Two nice features from modern applications like Google Chrome/Chromium? or MonoDevelop? would also be really neat to have in Padre:

While a search (e.g. the incremental search) is active, all matching occurrences are marked:

  1. in the text -- so that the user can spot all of them immediately in the visible part of the text,
  2. in the scrollbar -- so that the user knows where the rest of the results is.

I have attached an example from Chromium, just to illustrate what I mean.

The first point, highlighting in the text, could be combined with the smart highlighting feature: http://ahmadzawawi.blogspot.com/2009/09/whats-new-in-padre-046.html
