I usually have multiple pen numbers devoted to text, one of which I use to distinguish auto text.
You have to manually change the text colour when typing your field. Then when the editing pens set is selected it highlights the auto text in a different colour, and when you come to print they are all set to black in the pen set.
Doesn't show you the auto text container name, but you can at least see it's live.
I also use a similar approach for modified dimensions, so when they are changed to a fake value (not the best practice but does happen) you can easily see which ones need to be double checked.
