Show text elements associated with a character style in the Assets panel
Style Guide - Rollover Highlighting
With the release of v. 0.8.22, when you rollover a style in the "Character Styles" listing, it should highlight all elements in the project that use that style. Inversely, if I click on an object that uses that style, it should highlight the style.
The current implementation means we have repeat entries if two usages share the same stylings, but could deviate in the future, because the use case is different.
You can now right click your character style in the asset panel and select “Highlight on Canvas.”

This feature released in v7.
Example: as demonstrated in the attached image, the font "Source Sans Pro" was clicked and all its instances were highlighted in the document.
Yes! This is exactly what I wanted. Even if I have 5-6 character styles, sometimes it's difficult for me to identify which one I have selected on the page. Particularly when I'm reviewing someone else's work and I didn't create the styles myself.
As a workaround, I just copy and paste the element.
