Highlight word

Dear Support team

I need your help to guide me to add a word to be highlight by using the new feature in the Xshell 6 where I want only the word as a whole word and not highlighting the part of word.
for example I need to highlight word ORA
but I got all the ORA highlighted even if it is part of word such as ORACLE
Also, how to apply this highlight to all my sessions ( I have more than 20 sessions) .

Thanks and regards

Program Ver. : Xshell 6

Re: Highlight word

Try exact matching of regular expressions. The next keyword in the "keyword to highlight" field would work.


Make sure to check the Regular Expression checkbox.

Xshell's highlight system uses the Perl compatible DEELX engine. Knowing this, you can find resources for the detailed usage of our highlight set feature.
