You can pick any word. Highlighter does not care about its meaning to the programming language, just what is on the screen.
To create a highlight, select the desired word or phrase and press
If the selection is an existing highlight, then you will be able to edit it. If it is a new one, you get to define its shape.
You can choose the tag shape, optional blur, and color. The Highlight Editor window shows you a preview to help you choose the right shape. You can also choose whether to allow partial matches or toggle case sensitivity.
For an existing rule, you can also uncheck "Rule is Active" to disable the rule without deleting it, or select Delete to remove the permanently.
Highlighter can create 4 different shapes, 4 option blur levels, using 40 different colors. You can also enter a hex value manually in the Options. These colors are chosen specifically to give you decent visibility whether using a dark or light theme.
There are 12 built in rules for creating dividers.
The Options let you edit the rules en mass, as well as use color values not in the default palette. You can delete highlights here.
