A quick way to check whether a river bank is connected to 2D

Occasionally we get models sent to the support team where the river banks are not correctly or completely connected to the 2D domain which represents the out-of-bank flow.  The following theme will allow you to theme those 2D elements which are connected to banklines.  By applying a bright colour and a thicker line, you can quite quickly visualise which river reach banklines are connected to the 2D Zone and which aren’t.  This also works for inline banks.
