Is there a way in EmEditor to put my cursor on a bracket, brace, or parenthesis and press some key that will move my cursor to the corresponding bracket, brace, or parenthesis ? I did not find any mention of such functionality in the help or in any of the menus.December 19, 2014 at 9:05 am #19723
Yes, certainly. With the default keyboard shortcut, you can use CTRL + ] to jump between ( and ), or [ and ], or etc. Its command name is “Find Matching Parenthesis/Bracket”, and you can find in the Quick Launch dialog box (Ctrl + Q) or Keyboard Map.

Is there also any way to automatically highlight the matching parenthesis to the one that the cursor is currently at (i.e. without actually jumping to it)?
This is a very common and useful feature in many popular code editors, and I would really love to be able to use it in EmEditor too!April 7, 2016 at 4:21 pm #20688
Yes, please check “Highlight Matching Brackets” check box in the Highlight (2) tab of configuration properties.

Is there any way to customize this highlight effect too? Right now it seemingly consists of only making the brackets a tiny bit more bold than usual, which unfortunately is quite hard to see on my current screen?
I missed your reply above for a while because lately the “Notify me of follow-up replies via email” feature of your forums seems to have stopped working for me, any idea why? I have checked the spam folder and no notification emails are there either, and it also always worked for me before?April 20, 2016 at 8:29 am #20771
You can go to configuration properties, the Display tab, select Matched parentheses/brackets, and then change the text color or background color.
I am not sure why you didn’t receive notifications. I would subscribe the RSS feeds for the entire forums.
Thank you,April 20, 2016 at 2:01 pm #20774
Excellent, thanks, works like a charm!
