    I am viewing and editing in Plain Text and I would like to have the active line
    highlighted so I can see it highlighted when multitasking in a multimonitor
    environment. Some of the lines are more than 2 monitors across. So this would
    highlight the line where my cursor is, or where it last appeared before I
    had to switch to a different app.  I am not permitted to edit the schema, at least not at this time.

    I searched the forum and other help resources. Thank you for your time.

    I'm not sure I completely understand, but in Plain Text view if you click on the line number (left edge of the screen) does it do what you are expecting?

    Yes this is mostly what I was looking for. Ideally, if I clicked anywhere on any line
    the entire line would show as highlighted while the cursor indicator was[u] still
    active[/u], but this is a start!  Thank you for your reply.
