Description Egor Ushakov 2011-11-22 09:31:28 UTC
Stop on any line in the code - debugger highlights it with green background, which is ok, but now try to click on a variable on this line - editor highlights all occurrences of the variable in the code but it is not visible on the current line (because of the green background).
Comment 1 Martin Entlicher 2011-11-22 10:46:46 UTC
The same is true for breakpoints.
We'd need a way how to merge the highlights...

Comment 3 Martin Entlicher 2013-09-13 13:34:11 UTC
It's not a duplicate of issue #231617.
This was submitted before dark theme was introduced. It's about the highlight preference, not about text readability.

This was already fixed by some other changes.

Integrated into 'main-silver', will be available in build *201402120001* on (upload may still be in progress)

Log: #205410: Step over operation should override all highlightings.
