I'm trying to write a function that exits isearch leaving the current match selected "transiently", so that the mark is deactivated by any unshifted movement command.
I've tried to modify this function,
(defun isearch-exit-mark-match () "Exit isearch and mark the current match." (interactive) (isearch-exit) (push-mark isearch-other-end) (activate-mark))
[source] which does select the matching string, but doesn't do so with a transient mark. How can I fix it?
