I realised using AF Range Control helps lit up the chosen AF point in yellow. ALWAYS!

Not quite always.  With screw drive lenses, it only works in AF-C.  DMF won't light up the AF points with screw drivers.  The SSM lenses seem to allow lighting up AF points regardless of AF mode selection.  I can't speak for other AF modes.  I only use AF-C and DMF.

Also won't work in video.  Things like changing lenses, switching from wide area AF back to spot selection, and a few odd control selections and menu dives, changes in drive mode selections...  Some combos of these things can cause the AF Range Control to disengage without warning.

I wish it were a fixed control.  It's a very nice and helpful workaround.
