[Feature Request] Highlight word find in scrollbar

Recommended Posts

Just like what Chrome does, putting highlight on the scrollbar to indicate positions of word finds. 

I think it could be very useful when one wants to search inside a long note.

May not be available in many of the OS's that Evernote supports...  but thanks for the thought;  the devs do read these posts,  so you never know...

I can definitely see the benefit, I've always appreciated it in Google Books. I'd certainly smile if I saw it, but I'm not holding my breath unfortunately. 

 

The difficulty I think is that this sort of thing is not natively supported by the either Mac or Window's scroll bars. This means that Evernote would have to write their own scrollbars for the Mac and Windows versions and replace the system scrollbars. Certainly a possibility but I suspect a rather onerous undertaking.

I am not sure whether Chrome actually uses system native scrollbar. The scrollbars (of Chrome and Evernote) do not look vastly different.

 

But I agree this is not like an easy implementation. Just have a proposal since this feature in Chrome brings much convenience. :)

I may be hallucinating but I could swear that was in the Windows client at one time, but it has been a while.
