Is there a way to tell if footage in media pane is already on timeline?

I have a large project w loads of clips both in the media pane and on the timeline.

I'm having trouble telling if certain clips are already on the timeline.

SERIF MOVIEPLUS has this neat feature, where you can click on a clip in the media pane and it will highlight where the clip is on the timeline.

I spent 30 minutes searching in the manual but could not find anything on this in MS 13.

Does MS have that feature?

From MSPlatinum online Help (F1):
Right-click a file in the Project Media window and choose Select Timeline Events from the shortcut menu. The cursor moves to the first event that uses the media, the timeline scrolls to the cursor, and all events that use the selected media file in the active take are selected.

Btw, you'll get context-sensitive help in MSP, if you
(from the Help menu,) choose What's This?. Your mouse pointer is displayed as a question mark to indicate that you are in What's This? help mode.
You can also press Shift+F1 to activate What's This? help.
Click on any portion of the window for context-sensitive help about the item you clicked on.

Thanks for the tip on the What's this - I hadn't used that cause I didn't think to or know what it was.

OK thanks - yup - before asking I did do the right click and I did see that timeline prompt - hmm I looked at it but did not think that was it.

Now that you explained it, it was so obvious I should have clicked on that.

But now I know! Thanks a lot!
