Highlight whole line

Post by thany »

How can highlight a whole line, like I could in NL 4.0?

Now it only highlights the part that was matched, which is ugly and not suitable to how I'm using it. I'm matching ".jpg" to highlight pictures, so only a very small rectangle gets a different colour, which is hard to see. I tried enabling custom colour in advanced options, but it sadly does not highlight the entire line, just the matched charcters :/

Using NL 7.0 b7 on Windows 10.
Running Newsleecher 7.0 on Windows 10 x64, because 4.0 stopped working

There is currently no option to highlight the entire line, but changing the highlight color to something more vibrant will make it stand out more. I have all of my articles in rather muted colors and then the filter highlights in yellow. While it's not as obvious as a full line highlighted, you still can't miss it.

I'm not implementing new functionality into the V7 line of NewsLeecher, but the code for highlighting the whole line was already ( almost ) there, so I have just quickly re-enabled it in this unofficial forum test release :


You can enable whole line highlighting from Settings -> Highlight -> Highlight Whole Line.

I haven't really tested it yet so let me know if it doesn't work properly.
bug fixed. no idea how. hate it when that happens. trying to break it again now. will. not. be. defeated.
