Thank you for the feedback.

I have logged your request to our issue tracking tool. This will be 
analyzed and implemented in a future version of Oxygen.

Regarding the highlighting (pinpointing), that will probably have to be 
implemented differently especially since the element that is being 
pointed at may not be visible or even in the same document.

Do not hesitate to contact us if you have further suggestions.
