Nice. But..

My use case is 300+ pages book with several occurences. If those red rectangles were provided as annotations, I could efficiently jump from one to another, without browsing all the book (thanks to the special Annotation pane).

Both searching occurrences (in PDF) using the line number of the original source or visually by looking for red rectangles is IMHO inefficient.

However, I agree there are more important features to implement.
