Breakpoints exist but are "invisble" during single stepping or animated replay in Web HTTP/HTML

Has anyone found a way to keep breakpoints visible in 12.50 Vugen even when the "active line" is on the same line?

In Web HTTP/HTML source code in Vugen, while either single stepping a script or running it in animated mode, the active line (by default shown as a yellow line with an right pointing arrow in the left margin just by the line numbers) takes precedence over the markers showing a line is a breakpoint.

So, normally a breakpoint is shown in some red/brown color. In the left margin, by the line numbers, there is a somewhat large globe, also in red/brown. This makes it obvious where the breaks point it.

Unless, of course, you single step your script - or, if you run it while having enabled animated run. That is, a page of code is shown and the active line (yellow) moved down through the code. If there is some request taking a long time, the active line pauses for a while until a response is received, then continues.

The problem is when the active line reaches a breakpoint. Suddenly the animation stops. The line does not move.

So far, the only way I have found to actually see the state of the active line, is to re-focus my eyes (and mind!) and read the word in the lower left corner of the screen. Does is say Paused? Then we have reached a breakpoint. Does it say Running...? Then I will have to wait for the server to respond.

This makes my eyes move between two places that are far apart. I would prefer to keep my eyes on the active line. Mentally to be "in the code" rather than breaking out to check some word in a corner.

So, has anyone found a way to let the breakpoint graphics "shine through" the active line graphics? Please share.
