Hi, I use Lightroom CC 2015.5.

In the "Develop Panel" I would love to see "highlighted" the tools I have used (i.e. if I use the "Gradient filter" I would like to see it highlighted even after I have clicked on the button "done"; if I haven't used it, I would love to see it "grey" just like it is now.)
Of course I would love to see the higlight on every tools I have used.
I hope I am clear enough. 

Best regards,
Nico

I never thought of that, but I think it could be handy.  Sometimes I'll notice something in a photo that I don't want there (for example, a halo effect on the horizon) and I will go back through the tools to see what I've used and may need to tweak in order to remove the halo.  Visually seeing at a glance which tools I've used would make that task easier.

Thanks Beverly, this is exactly the reason why I thought about about this feature.

Even the triangles in the Develop Panel could be highlighted (after some change of course).

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled LIGHTROOM Add indicators to show which tools are in use.

Please underline or put a box around the tools that are currently being used in the selected image. (Radial, brush, clone, crop..)

This would save so much time and errors if I could select an image and instantly see if there's clone work or brush work done. Currently, you have to select the tool then hunt around the image looking to see if there are clone circles or adjustment pins.

Instagram recently updated and added this feature. It's a no-brainer Adobe.
