toggle highlighted search request items

When you do a search, documents are found, and when you view them, the search request items are all highlighted in the document. Is there a way to toggle this highlighting? Thanks.

No. But if you wish to read it without those highlighted terms (which I agree can be distracting), just double click on the selection to open it in its own window.

If I find the document using Spotlight, it is not possible to double-click to open. It would really be helpful if there was a way to toggle the highlighting on and off.
