Finereader highlighting of selected problematic pattern

[RFE] Spelling and Grammer dialog - improve highlighting in the text of selected pattern not in dictionary

Currently if you have opened Spelling and Grammer dialog and you are working on a problematic pattern, you will see it in the dialog bold red, then you see it in main text underlined red. But... if you have many similar patterns in the text - all red underlined - you have no quick idea which one of the patterns you are now working on. It would be great, if current problematic pattern would be both red underline (current standard) but also (for example) "framed" with yellow box to offer quick orientation to the user.

(I'm attaching a screenshot from Abby Finereader where you can see how Finereader highlights a problematic pattern with yellow framing. Well, it is not doing it in text windows but Zoom windows but anyway...)

Currently in LibreOffice my way to find current pattern is to detect where is cursor located in the text and then go little back to find closes red underline pattern.

Just a note - in Finereader the problematic pattern is also visually distinguish in text area too, it has blackbackground and text is white, still having underline showing the pattern is "unknown".
