On Some of the drawings, selecting the part in BOM list highlights the part in the drawing views, however it seems this feature isn't working in most of the drawings. I was wondering if perhaps there was a setting that could be turned on/off that I'm missing . I find it a handy feature occasionally and would like to getting working on all the drawings I open..
Have you made sure that your highlight colour is set to something bright just to make sure it is as you would expect? you can find this in your system options. See the image below, in the Colours tab and then fnd highlight and edit the colour to something like pink or bright green.
