How to make a find request and then see the text you are searching for highlighted in each of the results?

Post

Hi,

I have a field with a lot of text content.

When I do a find request for a bit of text like, for example "architect", I get maybe 100 records returned, and I go through each record looking through this field until I find the word "architect".

I want to have this word that I am looking for highlighted in the field a different colour so I can spot it immediately and then look at the context it's used in.

This would save me a lot of time.

I've looked through the forum and it seems possible, but some of the threads I've seen talk about FM Pro Advanced. I only have FM Pro 13.

How can I do this?

I read http://forums.filemaker.com/posts/01ea96f880 but it didn't look like this highlights the text just sets up the search using global fields

I looked at http://www.briandunning.com/cf/578 and it mentioned FileMaker Advanced

http://fmforums.com/forum/topic/72290-smart-highlight/ this seems also to require Advanced ... to create a solution.
