Hi, since sublime text does recognise variables it would be helpful if you could do what the title says (while as of now you can just highlight multiple instances of the same string).
That would require some sort of language-aware semantic analysis, which is not available from the syntax highlighting.
Honestly from some testing I’ve done today that would be far less useful than what I thought in the beginning. What you can do now with cmd + D (on mac) is more than enough.
If you weren’t aware you can also do
cmd+k, cmd+d to skip an occurrence.
