I notice that when one of the xit/rit options are selected, the xit/rit drop-down is highlighted on the flag indicating the selection. However when any of the DSP options are selected, the DSP drop-down on the flag is NOT highlighted. Is this by design or an oversight?

David, It is by design.  As one of the radio's key design criteria, in SmartSDR, the ability to enable transmit and knowing exactly what frequency you are transmitting on must be under positive user control.  Since RIT/XIT has the effect of changing the slice frequency, but these changes are not reflected in the slice VFO readout, we highlight the X/RIT status annunciator / menu option to provide positive visual feedback that the slice frequency is possibly modified.
