When a component (for example types, elements, attributes) is found at current cursor position, Oxygen XML Editor performs a search over the entire document to find the component declaration and all its references. When found, they are highlighted both in the document and in the stripe bar, at the right side of the document. Customizable colors are used: one for the component definition and another one for component references. Occurrences are displayed until another component is selected and a new search is performed. All occurrences are removed when you start to edit the document.

This feature is on by default. To configured it, open the Preferences dialog box (Options > Preferences) and go to Editor > Mark Occurrences. A search can also be triggered with the Search > Search Occurrences in File () contextual menu action. All matches are displayed in a separate tab of the Results view.
