addendum I thought this was a bug, but it is not. I am leaving the post in case someone makes the same misinterpretation
This is an extremely minor issue, perhaps of some use to @peternlewis if it is an indication of a larger issue .
I usually color my comment action boxes orange and have never had problems in the past. Today, as I was writing in the comment box, the box turned blue despite the fact that the assigned color remains orange (see below). If I delete the comment, it reverts to orange. It's as if a word or combination of words in the comment box triggers the color change.
Heh. I don't think he would be offended by that (I don't think you're even the first to report this search highlighting feature as a possible bug) but if you're really concerned, you could always flag your post for mod attention, or just edit the original post.
I bought the MacSparky course you recommended, now 60% completed.
It is absolutely outstanding. Even after working for more than 2 years with KBM, I am learning a lot. My understanding of KBM has improved by leaps and bounds.
I mention this because if you notice that a novice is asking many simple questions and appears to be trying to find his way around KBM (like I did for a long time, and still do), you could perhaps recommend he take the course.
My first year would have been much less tedious had I taken the course from the beginning.
In the first minute of the course, he recommends reassigning the CAPS key to ⇧⌃⌥ ⌘ with the Karabiner app, to use it to systematize KBM shortcuts. That in itself in worth the cost of the course.
The lessons are extremely well structured. No waste of time. He must have taken a lot of time to prepare them.
