Having symbol list is a great thing. But in most editors it is not just a static list, but highlighting is dynamically changing whenever you move around the code.

You may have long functions. When you search for something, you get somewhere, but may not recognize in which function you are. Instead of scrolling up, it would be great to see the current function highlighted in the symbol list.

    Well, the current function is already shown on the status bar.
    The symbol list would have to scroll the selected function in view, which may be undesirable. I'm not sure the feature is necessary.

    Sorry, I did not notice it on the status bar. Telling the truth it is not really obvious to look for the name on the status bar. But it is a usable solution, so this request can be omitted.
