You have references to /K (instead of /H) in the /H documentation. Thanks for the awesome plugin.

/H:color allows you to set the colors used to highlight found text. color may be an integer value (prefix 0x for hexadecimal) or a quoted string. For example, /K:0X1E or /K:"BRIGHT YELLOW ON BLUE" will cause matching text to be highlighted in bright yellow on blue. /K:0 or /K:REVERSE shows matching text in reverse video. Note that the plugin will pick different colors if the matching text has the same background color as the one you specify.

P.S. CONSEARCHOPTS shows the hotkey is Alt-F (the default) but Alt-F doesn't work on TCMD v16.0 x64. Changing the default doesn't help, e.g. "CONSEARCHOPTS /K:Alt-Q" appears to change the hotkey ("CONSEARCHOPTS" shows it's now Alt-Q) but it doesn't do anything (just beeps). TCMD break something in v16 or x64? Or the hotkey only works if TC[C] is used outside of TCMD? "Detach" the tab from TCMD and the hotkey works, so this is a bug ('feature'?) of TCMD?

Usually, Take Command will intercept one of the Alt keys, but pass the other one through to the console program. Use Options / Take Command / Tabs, and see the "Left Alt Key" and "Right Alt Key" tick boxes (under "Windows").
