No colored cell names in the input line

When editing an existing formula, the cell names are colored only in the spreadsheet, but not in the input line.

For people--like me--who edit the formula in the input line, it would be very helpful to highlight the cell names with colors there, as well.
In this way, the assignment of the cells names to the corresponding colored frames would be much easier.

For better understanding of the issue, it might be helpful to see the attached file.

Hi Yousuf,

as far as I know, in Google Docs it is colored in the spreadsheet as well as in the input line. For me, this is the optimal solution.

I know neither Quattro Pro, nor Gnumeric, nor Calligra.

But I can tell you that it is colored in Excel 2013 - however, only in the input line, not in the spreadsheet. (You don't need to believe me. See the attached file.)

Greetings,
Tobias
