• Building CodeLite - Linux
Before CodeLite 5.4 there was only one sort of bookmark, and configuring it just meant selecting a shape and a colour.
The first 4 bookmark types are for normal use. You create them in the usual way: e.g. from the editor's margin context-menu, or by clicking the 'Toggle Bookmark' tool on the toolbar.
The fifth is for 'Find'. It's yellow by default, and they are created either by the QuickFind bar's 'Highlight All Matches' tool or by the Find/Replace dialog's 'Bookmark All' button.
Bookmarks can be configured from 'Bookmarks' section of Settings > Global Editor Preferences. You can change the shape of the marker, which affects all bookmark types. You can also set the colours of each type of bookmark, and optionally give each a more-helpful label ('Find' already comes with one).
When changing colours, note that scintilla reverses the normal the meanings of 'Background' and 'Foreground': the background is the centre of the shape, the foreground the outer rim.
