Steps to reproduce

When your mouse hover an element inside the developer tools, it should show where it is on the page with padding, margin, etc.
Google Chrome is doing that very well.

Also, add the possibility to see the current window width and height. It’s better to develop with media queries.

    • Thanks for the feedback. You can enable element highlighting with the “DOM element highlighting” on hover with the (ctrl+shift+i) which is the 2nd command icon from the right of the DOM Explorer’s command strip. Let us know if that doesn’t work for you.

    • Thank you. I didn’t know what was this icon lol.

      Fixed my problem :)
