Key bindings

Ctrl+Alt+Shift+h : Toggle highlighting on/off.

Menu commands

You can toggle highlighting in the View menu. The setting is per view, and not saved to disk. This can be changed in the settings, see below.

Configuration

You can override the default settings by creating a file in Packages/User/highlighter.sublime-settings: Check the default highlighter.sublime-settings file for available settings.

Syntax ignore

You can add a list of syntaxes to ignore with the following setting:

{
  "highlighter_syntax_ignore": ["Python", "PHP"]
}

Save toggled state

To persist the toggled state to disk, set the following to true:

{
  "highlighter_save_settings_on_change": true
}

Custom regex

You can customise the regex to highlight:

highlighter_regex <- Matching characters highlighted with fill and outline
highlighter_regex_cool <- Matching characters highlighted with stippled underline

{
  "highlighter_regex": "(\t+ +(?![*]))|( +\t+)|([\t ]+$)",
  "highlighter_regex_cool": "[\u2026\u2018\u2019\u201c\u201d\u2013\u2014\u00a0]"
}
