Search doesn't highlight all found items, neither allows jumping to next finding easily

Marked's search function makes it pretty hard (or at least not handy enough) to search a file. First, the highlight is not very notorious; second, not all findings are highlighted; third, jumping to the next finding is not accessible enough (just today I found out that ⌘G does it); and fourth, it doesn't support searching terms inside " " (sorry, don't know how those are called in english, I speak spanish).

Back in 2011, in another discussion here, you mentioned you were trying to implement the native (I suppose?) search function used in Safari, Preview, and TextEdit (among others). Is this possible? Said search function is way more useful than Marked's current one. It would be awesome if you could look into that.

    Are you talking about Marked 1.4 or version 2?
