Unhappy Highlight Keyword Problem

Hello I'm new on SecureCRT, I had made some highlight configuration but now I'm stuck with something. So this is the question:

How can I distinguish 'down' from 'administratively down' as a phrase??

I want to have: Down in red, but administatively down in yellow.

I expect you could help me, telling me what is the correct keyword for this?

Best regards!!

Hi gdsalinas,

It is not currently possible to highlight phrases in SecureCRT.

I have submitted a feature request on your behalf to implement the support of phrase matching in keyword highlighting. Should a future release of SecureCRT include this functionality, notification will be posted here.

If you prefer direct email notification, send an email to support@vandyke.com and include *"Feature Request - Forum Thread #13469"* in the subject line.

The ability to use spaces in keywords (including regular expressions) has been added to SecureCRT 8.7, which is currently in beta testing. It can be downloaded here:
