Sprite is not being highlighted in the Project window when pressing on it in the Inspector window if using a specific Layout



How to reproduce:
1. Open the project ""
2. Open "SampleScene" Scene (Assets>Scenes>SampleScene)
3. In the Hierarchy expand "Canvas"
4. Select "Image"
5. In the Inspector window press on "emoji" Sprite field

Expected result: Sprite is highlighting in the Project window
Actual result: Sprite is not highlighting in the Project window

Reproducible with: 2019.4.30f1, 2020.3.18f1, 2021.1.20f1, 2021.2.0b12, 2022.1.0a9

- If the Layout is changed from the "Layout" button then highlighting is working

  1. Resolution Note (fix version 2022.1):

    The project view window was locked. A Locked project view indicates that no changes should be made externally, including expanding a sprite asset to ping its sub-asset.
    Added a ping to indicate if the window is locked.

    FYI, it turned out I had a lock icon enabled in the hierarchy pane. It seems that it disables the highlighting feature. This is somewhat logical, but maybe it could be addressed anyway - the lock icon might blink maybe? From my perspective It really looked like a bug and there was no indication whatsoever that the hierarchy was just locked.
