Search results highlight

Asked by Yuri Weinstein on 2016-06-29

I'd like to know if there is any way to enable search in the terminator window to highlight results?
And/or when this functionality will be included into the stable version?

Not currently possible in the gtk2 (0.98) version. It could be done with a massive hacky approach cribbed from the now ancient ClusTerm but is probably more effort than it is worth. The gtk3 version uses a much newer libvte that provides inbuilt search facilities. The code would need to be updated to use this newer method instead of the ported gtk2 method.

Someone just needs to find time to sit down and do the implementation.

@Stephen thanks for the reply
I just wanted to add my 2c, but this functionality, or lank of, seems to me so significant that I can over emphasise it!
I think it it will be done it will make terminator way better to users like myself :)
Pls consider making it happen !
