Find all instances of a search string

A number of script and text editors have the ability to find and highlight all instances of a search string. The live-search option of BBEdit is a good example. I couldn’t find any way to do this with Script Debugger and wondered if I missed something?

If not, I thought I might write a script. Finding the matching strings is easily done, but I don’t know how to highlight the search strings in the Script Debugger editor. Is there some way to do that?


Hey @peavine,

I’m fairly certain Script Debugger doesn’t support multiple-selection-ranges.

@alldritt , @ShaneStanley?


No, Script Debugger doesn’t have a Find All facility.

Thanks Christopher and Shane.
