Having spent way too much time getting the value extraction correct, especially with somewhat complex reports.
I would Propose:
With properties window open when I select a value or columnbox, I would be given the option to copy the full path to that selection that I could paste into a script.
If a clean selection can be determined, a right click would have an option to get report location of feature.
I agree. This would be a nice option.
I'll make a note in our request system.
