I'm having some trouble getting this to work... I'm working with Eclipse using the PDT (PHP Development Tools) plug-in (and the PHP part of the Aptana Studio plug-in). I am trying to get variable names to highlight when I highlight one instance of the variable name; much like is possible in Notepad++. For example, if I highlight $myVariable at one point the script, all other instances of that variables should highlight in the same script.

I've been all through the preferences menu settings (annotations, mark occurrences, etc.) and haven't been able to find out how to get this to work.

"mark occurrences" is generally what that feature is referred to as. The PDT forum may be more illuminating as to why it's not working as you expect.

I've actually figured out that it seems to work within a PHP project... but when I open a single file that I had created previously, via NotePad++, it does not work. Seems to be tied to something with projects.
