Look through lens to focus light

Question

Over 15 years ago i bought Martin Show Designer which then had a very useful feature to focus lights called "Look Through Lens".  Selecting a fixture and this function opened  a  window that allowed the user to literally  look through the lens of the fixture to focus it. A very fast way to focus lights, it would be a nice thing to have.

Beam Viz by @benghiat does that very thing and I just deployed it successfully to demonstrate to the team the irrefutable fact that the Line Arrays hung 'there' would block the shot 'here'
