I am trying to highlight multiple lines in an AbstractTextEditor and already tried using
ITextEditor.setHighlightRange(offset, length, moveCursor)
. The range is set correctly (I checked it using
ITextEditor.getHighlightRange()
) and the cursor is moved to the beginning of this range as expected. However, the only highlighting I get is due to the cursor position. This means, the whole line in which the cursor is in gets highlighted, but nothing else no matter what I set the range to.

Am I doing something wrong or is this the expected behaviour?
