Maintain navigation pane highlight for selected item

Use case or problem

As a user I want to search for item(s) e.g., #TAG then select a retrieved search item in the left hand navigation pane for display on the edit/preview pane with the selection remaining “highlighted” so that when I am navigating a large returned list I can quickly understand what retrieved search item I am currently viewing in the edit/preview pane.

Proposed solution

Maintain highlight of a selected item in the navigation pane.

Current workaround (optional)

I currently use the show path plugin.
