Hi Ferdinand, 

Just so you know, this feature cannot be implemented in 2019 R2 yet. It is quite difficult to do although it will indeed be very helpful.

Best regards,

Hi Ferdinand,

Thanks for reporting this problem and for your valuable great suggestion.
We'll record it as a new enhancement / requirement request and will transfer it to our product team for consideration.

Hi Ferdinand;

   Thank you for the feedback and all your efforts in testing the PB2019R2 beta!

   I will now pass this observation on to the Engineering Team. In the mean-time, some screen captures and/or a simple PB example App could be most helpful in narrowing in on this behaviour.

Regards ... Chris

I'm currently testing the ribbon builder by editing the template.
It is a chore to search where a property is located in the xml and what control a specific property in xml changes in the ribbon.

Two huge improvements would be:
-cLick on the ribbon preview -> the responsible element in the xml is highlighted and srcolled to
-click on an element in the xml -> the Object in the preview is highlighted
