I recently tried shooting a few of my son's soccer games letting the camera select the focus point after years of just using the center point. I thought that ZoomBrowser would show which point the camera had chosen for each picture, but alas it is just showing that all the points were selected.

Is there something I am missing? Is there a way to discern which point was chosen by the camera (beyond the obvious "what looks most in focus")?

I suspect that you use AIServo with all points active. If you use AIServo with all points active, it will show you all points lit up.

Showing the focus points is not that sophisticated. If, for example, you focus and recompose, the point that you focused on will not be shown. It will center the focus points over the final frame and show you the active point on something else.
