How about adding all the search results to a new page, with a link to their paragraphs.

Now that will be it

Could you add an option to change the text color or highlight whatever exists between two square brackets?
For example,
Text text [text text text]. ["Text"]

Is it possible to add a functionality to use regular expressions? For example, a problem that I have is that I want a macro to highlight everything that is between two square brackets (including the square brackets). We can do this with regex by typing \[(.*?)\], but it seems that I cannot do it with this macro.
