Highlight Usages in File


Just wanted to say that I really like the feature to automatically highlight identifiers etc in the new IntelliJ, but I was hoping it would work the same as the manual invocation of 'Highlight usages in File', but unfortunately, it doesn't. For example, when selecting a 'catch' statement, nothing happens at the moment. But when invoking 'Highlight usages in File', the method which throws the exception is selected, which, IMO, is really handy.

So, my question is: could this be added? Maybe with a configuration switch if people don't like this behaviour, but for me, it would add a lot of value!
