If you open an object, you need to click through all tabs to see whether the job has a preprocess, an attached promptset or other settings that differ from the default.
It would be a great benefit if differences are highlighted on the left-handed tabs by - i.e. - making the text bold. You would see on the first sight in what tabs you would need to look to understand the object completely.
What's the "default":
If an object is exported into JSON, only differences are stored within that JSON. So I guess there is something like a "default" object. So basically highlights could be done down to the single setting that does differ from the default and not only the category.
