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.
It would be great to have selected value highlighted for each repetition
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.
