I'd like to change the highlight colors for the QuickFixLine highlight group (something like highlight QuickFixLine term=reverse ctermbg=DarkGrey). Sidenote: the QuickFixLine highlight group is the one that highlights the current selection in the quickfix list.

Instead of highlighting the whole line until the end of the screen though, is it possible to just highlight the part of the line with text in it? I.e. the same as how visual select does it?

Current highlight settings for quickfix list: highlight_entire_line

Preferred highlight settings for quickfix list: only_highlight_text

Any help is greatly appreciated.

  • It might have to do with the start and stop options to :highlight? I looked at the documentation, but wasn't sure how to interpret those parts – J-Win Jan 17 at 3:01
