Can one please help my how to setup the following:
- disable highlight occurrences when NOT selected/marked, but only when text is selected/marked?

E.g. picture below, the cursor is at the end of the text TGF_PATH in ln.51, and then all "TGF_PATH" occurrences are highlighted.

I only want occurrences of TGF_PATH to be highlighted if TGF_PATH is selected/marked - see picture below:

Last but not least, how do I change the blue selected/marked color..?

Btw. I'm using PyDev in Eclipse Smile

Thanks in advance..

I don't have or use PyDev so I can't be sure this feature is available there, but for Java (and C/C++) editors in Eclipse there is a preference to control this behavior. Under Window > Preferences > Java > Editor > Mark Occurrences the option is called "Keep marks when the selection changes" and disabling that yields the behavior you're looking for. See if there is a similar option in the PyDev preferences.

You can go to preferences and enter "Mark" and all related "Mark Occurances" related options for your specific plugins will show up.
