This is what I am wondering folks.  It would be pretty simple to add a
toggle so that you cursor position would be reflected by selecting the
containing Procedure in the outline view.  This is how other eclipse
editors show where they are in the program and this is one of main uses of
the outline view.
However the ILE RPG outline view is special in that it also contains
cross-reference information that most other editors do not have.
The problematic scenario would be when people are navigating from a
definition in the outline to its usages in the editor, and then to have the
selection in the editor in turn change the outline selection, they would
lose their place in the outline view (i.e. the selected definition).
The mitigating factors are
1) it is a toggle, you can turn it off, and it will be off by default
2) Now we have the ability to highlight multiple occurrences, you can
navigate to all references to a variable within the editor without using
the outline view.

Given these mitigating factors, do you agree that a toggle to select the
containing procedure/definition in the outline view would be the right way
to satisfy this RFE.

Voted.  I added a comment to reflect a concern I have over the outline
being used to identify where you are.

Added my vote as well. There have been many times it would have been nice
to see where I'm at in the code, especially after searching for field usage
or something similar.

I've voted for RFE 11119 as well.  With some of the big programs we have
around here, I get lost easily, even when I do split screen to simplify it
a bit.
