Enhancement request - Object Highlighting ??

softfoot

Is it possible to highlight in some way the part of the preview
represented by the editor line that the cursor is on ???

This would certainly help me when I'm modifying someone else's complex
and uncommented design.

Regards,
Dave

Sorry, I should have added that I current use "Color()" but using the
cursor would be much easier/convenient.

I just put a # in front of the object, which can be quite helpful.

With Openscad 2021.01 you can right click on a model to find where it is defined in code, to reverse the creation process.
In the other direction you can use #, % and color( ) to highlight.

Many thanks for pointing me at the appropriate sections.
