in a search result page, highlight items which are currently visible in canvas

Description

revealing items from search results is especcially cumbersome since the one cannot predict just from the sorting of items (e.g. when items have same name) which one is the instance already visible on my canvas and which is the other one i additionally want to reveal.

idea is to point out items part of the result-listing which are already part of the current map, even if not visible in current viewport of map.

items which are part of a result-list and are already on the canvas => click leads to focussing of item, changing viewport of the map

items which are part of a result-list and _not_ already on the canvas => click leads to newly placing of item in map, changing viewport of the map

i am interested in which form of rendering would you would favour to present this .. ? maybe an icon indicating that the _focussing action_ instead of the _adding to map action_ will happen when one presses this/or that item of the result list

More informative topic lists (#308, #329, #387).

Topic lists displayed in the page panel, e.g. search results, are more informative: topics which are already visible on the canvas are displayed with an disabled icon. This provides for better orientation when revealing a whole bunch of topics and is particularily useful in conjunction with #387.

Topics which are visible on the canvas are now visually distinctive in the page panel.

Does this solve your (Malte) original issue?

Yeah, I just checked it out. It looks cool and prevents me from useless clicking thanks to me feeling _informed_ now in regards of my current overview. Thanks a lot.
