Rhino 6 - missing indication that component has been selected in the palette

not a single component is being indicated under the mouse after selecting it in the panel.

when i click on the grasshopper viewport after i have selected a component, it releases it. i found out about that coincidentally, logically one would assume it did not select the component. i restarted rhino and tried again with the same result.

this issue never quite got fixed, rhino 7 almost the same, the components do not show till i move further to the canvas.
