Want selected option of a slicer/filter to get pinned to the top of the slicer visual

The dashboard I'm working on uses a slicer visual called 'Client Code' to sort the other visuals. This slicer is on multiple tabs/pages, but slicers are not synced and do not need to be synced.

The issue is that there are so many client codes to select that:

users may forget - or not be able to tell without scrolling for a while - that they have made a selection on the client code slicer. 

I have toggled on the search option so client codes are easier to find.
I also am aware that users can clear their selections - some users just dont have the familiarity with the program so I have considered providing documentation on this to them for the timebeing. 


*Is there a way to pin the selected option for a slicer (in this case pinning a selected client code) to the top of the list/slicer?* 

For futher context I did previously find a solution using a measure which displays which client code has been selected for the tab/page:


Filter Selected Client Code =
IF (
    ISCROSSFILTERED( 'Table Name' ),
    CONCATENATEX ( FILTERS ( 'Table Name'[Client Code] ), 'Table Name'[Client Code], ", " ),
    "Not selected"

However, this slows down performance so I would like to remove this measure from the model if possible. 


Thanks in advance,

Use a card visual to indicate the current slicer selection.
