What you can do is open a new window (window>arrange>new window for
"name of file.indd") for the same file and zoom into the text in
question in the second window while working in the first. That will give
you live update of what you're doing. In fact, I prefer doing it that way.
Bob, your answer seems to suggest that selected text in ID CC is by design concealed by the highlight. Is that the case?
It is not the selected text that is concealed. It is the text underneath that i am trying to match.
That is indeed the way it is in CC. Text highlighting, I believe is now
controlled by the operating system.
