Highlight start/end tags - Am I...

Seems to me I used to be able to select a tag
<div>
for example and the closing
</div>
would be highlighted. I have searched high & low for a setting to turn this on? Tag-pairing? Tag highlighting? Code-Highlighting? Where is it?
I don't want to run code cleaner when I'm in the midst of messy what-ifs while trying to learn everything that's changed since, oh, html2?

If it's gone; or I'm thinking of DFTP? (which I use to use exclusively for editing html - yep.) Could you please add this simple function?

Thanks!
I should have something clever to say... but I don't.

I think the highlighting of end tags when clicking on start tags - or vice versa - has never been a function in the Editor. Many people have asked for it though, and it certainly would be a nice feature.
You find it in DFTP, though. Not as highlighting, but as underlining.

One can only hope that this long list will have the desired effect, rather than being disposed of in the traditional manner of such paper... ;)

I would go for this.
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Thanks Ingur for reassuring this old mind of mine. :D Underlining/ color highlighting is a nice thing!

Hi,
I'm a new user to Coffee Cup and I find the editor very difficult to get used to.
It's not what it does, its what it dosen't do!!
I have often used NotePad++ and as a text editor and as an editor it is brilliant.. no equal, certainly not Coffee Cup..
One function I use often is associating Tags.
in Notepad++ if I click on one tag the corresponding end tag highlights and vice versa..
Dosen't happen in Coffee Cup, so now I have to use two editors on the same file both Coffee Cup an Notepad++
Surely Coffee Cup can implement this feature quickly..

We have been asking for that feature a lot of times, but they haven't listened to it - yet.
