Using the full search bar (^F):

- search for a term and selecting highlight all marks the matches with a given colour
- search for another term and selecting highlight all marks the matches with the same colour

It would be helpful if each subsequent search used a unique highlight colour to more easily distinguish from other search terms

Reproducible: Always



Expected Results:

I don't think this make much sense, since the result of the first search won't be show at the second time, how come we need to distinguished them?

Are you sure?  I've definitely had multiple search terms highlighted at the same time.  Maybe it's a bug.
