Highlight matching parentheses

Is it possible to highlight matching parentheses while editing by placing the cursor on one of the parentheses? I have not found that feature in the documentation, but it would be very helpful sometimes.

It works in case wordwrap is disabled in PSPad 4. In the last build of PSPad 5 (developer forum) it works in WorWrap mode again.

Thank you. I had overseen this option, because I have looked for an unchecked option in the configuration.
But this option is checked, and wordwrap is turned off, and still matching parentheses are not highlighted in any way. Is there something else that must be configured to activate the feature? Can there be a conflict with the "highlighter" configuration - I write Autohotkey scripts, and by default there is no highlighter for AHK scripts. Do I need to configure a highlighter for this file extension?

My PSPad version is 4.5.9

Are you sure WordWrap is off? Menu View or Ctrl+W?
Is there any highlighter active?

As I wrote you, in the latest PSPad 5 highlight matching brackets works in WordWrap mode again
