Is there a way to highlight the current line?

Answer 1.

 Line Pointer
The "Edit | Preferences | Editor | Show line pointer" option enables the highlighting of the current line. The Line Pointer makes it easier to locate the cursor while distinguishing the current row of code from the rest of the lines.

Answer 2.

The "View | Editor | Line Pointer" option can be used to temporarily enable the Line Pointer.

Answer 3.

To create a keyboard shortcut to toggle the Line Pointer on and off:
The following steps can be used to assign the "View | Editor | Line Pointer" main menu option to a keyboard shortcut such as "Ctrl+Shift+L".
  • Select "Tools | Customize | Customize Keyboard Shortcuts" from the main menu.
  • Click the "Add" button.
  • Press a key (such as "Ctrl+Shift+L") or pick a key from the drop-down menu under the "Shortcut Key" field.
  • Click the "Menu command" radio button.
  • Select "MViewLinePointer" from the drop-down list.
  • Click the "Add" button.
  • Click the "OK" button to close the "Shortcut Key" dialog.
  • Click the "OK" button to close the "Keyboard Shortcuts" customization dialog.
Pressing "Ctrl+Shift+L" (or the assigned keyboard shortcut) will now invoke the "View | Editor | Line Pointer" main menu option.
