Display shape name on QAT?

Is there a way I can display the name of the selected shape on the Quick Access Toolbar?

I have the Shape Name icon on the QAT, but that just opens up the Shape Name dialog. I'd like it to work like the Layer command which has a little display window showing the layers the selected shape is assigned to. Is there a way to do that?
Using Visio 2019, part of Office 365 on Windows 10


I don't know way how display shape name in QAT!

But i can share with you how define assigned layers for selected shape and shape name too.
1. Try install add-in Jump to Shape by Nikolay
Quote from: Nikolay in article Jump to ShapeWhen you right-click a shape, the plugin highlights (focuses) the selected shape in the drawing explorer, so you can up/drill down the shape hierarchy.
2. In drawing explorer you can see shape name and assigned layers
