That is perhaps where the divide is between those requesting it and those saying it would be annoying. The binder is designed to drive the editor, not the other way around. It is a top-end organisational tool and working space. The behaviour that is being proposed here would convert the binder from that sort of tool, into some kind of auxiliary feedback device like the Explorer sidebar in Windows, that just jumps around showing you whatever you clicked on—but is in itself because of that, somewhat useless as a work space because it is not persistent and only nominally drives the right side. Hence, any friction toward making that sort of change. You’re really asking for some of the core management features of Scrivener to be converted into a completely different sort of program.

But from your extensive answer I gather that you are well aware of the issue.
But why wouldn’t it reflect the current document instantly?
And I never had this issue until my book advanced to the third draft, so I find myself increasingly multitasking between numerous sections making extensive edits all week long
Scrivener is extremely beautiful piece of software, very well thought out, and it would be a shame to alter anything fundamental, but I really don’t get it why it’s such a big deal. I can’t see it destroying the binder just improving it.
You can start by adding this feature silently, don’t activate it, just place it somewhere in the options for the rest of us, and see if it’s the end of the world

I do either one myself, depending on how righteous I feel I am in my disagreement with the developers of X software (cough iTunes).

Can I suggest that someone video savvy from your team showcase the real power of Scrivener using your above described examples. The real life workflow.
