Hi mwlandolsi, this sounds like it could be in the same ballpark as: Ticket #4730 Children and/or parent to be highlighted when hoovering over something in the tree/3D viewport

FC 0.20 master does not highlight a feature at all. This is only in realthunder;
but If you want to change a bend length, for example, you spend a lot of time to find it.

Hide/show (space-bar) a function in the tree to find the right one.

Btw, the OP image can be done with just one SheetMetal_AddBase

It is clunky to do it that way, TBH. This would be a welcome feature.
