Let the "step" button start debugging at the current cursor location

Quite often, I'd like to inspect the current context at the current location of the worksheet, where I am just working on.

When pressing the "step" or "recalculation" button, execution of the worksheet starts at the beginning.

Then you either need to set a breakpoint at the current location or go step by step down the worksheet.

The proposal is to let the step button just display the current context in the debug window when pressed in edit mode.

Eventually, the current cursor position might be considered as a breakpoint by default (if cursor is in a math region). Then recalculate would stop there.

However, if the upstream worksheet has been executed earlier, the context should be available immediately for display without the need to execute it again.
