How to show colour coding/highlighting on Calc's input line?

Hi. Have you seen how when you enter or edit a formula in the cell the arguments/cells/cell ranges get a different colour for easy visualization of which arguments point to which ranges?

However when you edit the formula on the input line it's all black even though the ranges still get coloured borders

So why does the input line not show the corresponding colours of the arguments and cell/ranges and how can you change it so that it does?

Thank you

After upgrading to 5.4.3.2 this feature get lost. I can't see any color reference of participating fields on formulas. Same issue under Linux and Windows

Hello is there any enhancement available on this? would be great to even be able to set your own color as Background for complex formula. Cheers, J
