Core Plugin "Outline": Highlight the current position

Use case or problem

In longer documents, it is sometimes hard to navigate. The Core Plugin “Outline” help in this regard a lot. I think it would even be better, if it would somehow show the current courser-position within the outline.

Proposed solution

show the current courser-position within the outline (on the right pane) visually - mb with an accent color or bold.

+1, great idea. The Outline plugin is an excellent concept but it needs tweaks like this (and, e.g. not unfolding whenever you type something) to be truly useful for longer documents.

Highlight current position, but also allow sections to be rearranged.
iirc there have been FRs

Rearranging sections from the Outline view would be a game-changer for writers!

True. Highlighting corresponding position within an outline is really helpful especially when writing and looking through long documents.

This is one option.

Another would be the one used by the Dynalist outliner (same devs) with a path across the top:


I think I’d choose this, given a preference.
But either would be good.
