Hi clay584,

As explained in the email, the current implementation of SecureCRT's keyword highlighting support is by design. It is keyword highlighting after all, not phrase or sentence highlighting. When supporting spaces was tested, thus phrases or sentences, performance was severely impacted.

I have added this thread to a feature request in our product enhancement database to support substring and phrase matches in keyword highlighting (regex with spaces). Of course it's contingent on the prior one being implemented, but I have also created a feature request for the ability to match an entire phrase, but colorize only a substring.

Should a future release of SecureCRT include either feature, notification will be posted here.

If you prefer direct email notification, send an email to and include "Feature Request - Forum Thread #12250" in the subject line or use this form from the support page of our website.
