Default Highlight action in action list

Is there a way to easily highlight the action of a shortcut when you do reverse shortcut lookup?

I know the find action puts the action either at the top or at the bottom, but the writing is a little small, and with punctuation it can be tough to see sometimes. but a quick highlight of the action makes it so easy to immediately see what's the action.

If it would be possible to be able to add keywords, or change terminology on some actions that would be cool too. Sometimes there's some inconsistencies, and word choices like "remove" rather than "delete" or something like that. It makes it tough to find actions sometimes. If we could add keywords, we'd eventually be able to add our own and it would get a lot better over time.

Sure. I was pondering doing that myself, but I seemed to recall that it should pass through public scrutiny first. Sorry if that wasn't right.

Actually this is just to make it a little easier to quickly find the action in question.

like, when you open the actions dialog and you what to find the action for a given shortcut, it will place it I think at the bottom, but that doesn't always quickly seem obvious, and for some buttons, like , and . it can be tricky to see what it is. So, if the action linked to the shortcut was highlighted when you searched for it, that would just make it a little neater and faster to instantly see exactly what's the action linked to that key press.
