Side-by-side with other types of windows

I routinely view Excel sheets side-by-side other types of windows.  When I do this, I usually have a row or cells selected. However, when I go to click on the other window I have  up, I loose the selection highlighting that occurs to help me reference what I was looking at more quickly.

Is there a solution to this?  Assistance is greatly appreciated.

As you've discovered, the cell highlighting is only visible when that window is active. There is no way that I know of to avoid this.

What I generally do is apply other highlighting, for example setting the Fill Colour. Then set it back to no fill when done.

You can automate that suggested visualization with a OnSelectionChange event handler, but that sounds a bit drastic.
