Accepted Answer

Unfortunately rich text is not yet supported (fx 2.2).

You can try next workarounds:

  1. Use RichTextEditor
  2. Use WebView
  3. Draw several Text on Canvas
  4. Just put Text/Labels with different formatting in HBox or TilePane.
  5. Create a transparent pane over the TextArea and draw an opaque highlights, but this can be hard due to complexity of finding out exact words coordinates.
