If there are many pages involved in Page Navigation then
for the current Page (source page) opened in the Designer and a user opens Page
then the Navigation editor opens but the current page wasn't selected, so it's 
not easy to find this "source" page

To reproduce:

1) Create a project and a bunch of pages each with buttons
2) Open Page Navigation and link up the buttons in each page to other pages
3) Open a Page in the Designer
4) Right-click in Page background in Designer and choose Page Navigation

Page Navigation opens but the current page edited is not selected in the
Navigation editor

Page navigation editor is an editable view of navigation.xml. There is no
connection between the current page being edited in the designer and the
navigation.xml. So it is impossible to say which page being edited in the
designer when the navigation editor is opened. Need to find a way if this
information could be passed through some design time API.

This is not a P2 enhancement.  I am putting it at P4 for now.
