It seems as either counterintuitive interface or just a bug: I can't select some symbols and highlight them with special button -- it automatically selects whole word (as TS understands it) and then highlights all its occurrences.

For example I want to highlight all "border" words, manually selecting "border" inside "border-top":

Correct. This is by design because border-top is a CSS property, and this feature highlights complete tokens only.

So this design appears to be a bit counterintuitive (the Highlight button appears after I manually select anything) and unproductive (the example above is real world scenario in which I want to highlight all CSS properties that related to border).

I see no reason why this can't be treated as a bug from user's prospective.
