Double click highlight occurrences
Double clicked strings and integers should be clearly highlighted (like in Notepad++ or in VSCode) if there are multiple occurrences of the same word or number.
We’re not sure how much work this might be, but we’ll look into it.
notepad++ does this and it is awesome. I miss it very often.

MUCH NEEDED feature!
Right now I am forced to have a script open in both powershell ISE and notepad++ just for this functionality, definitely would be nice to have.

An additional way to do this could be a SublimeText style 'highlight all' when I do a Find. Control+F's window should display the number of occurrences of my highlighted strings as well.
I would like to see the whole variable highlighted too, rather than just the text after the $. That way if I want a quick copy & paste of a variable, I don't have to type the $.
Exactly, this is a small but big issue with the current ISE.

Makes identifying the same variable that may be used many times throughout a script much easier. I like this one. Voted.
