Change text color in shapes

I use shapes to design my custom input fields. This works fine except that I want to change the text color to grey for the ‘placeholder’ text in the initial state of the input field.
To fix this I have to group the shape with a text item, for which I can change the text color. It would be easier if I could just make the shape’s text grey.

Hi @Iba,

Thanks for this - I totally understand. I see we’ve had this request from at least one other customer so we’re already formally tracking it. I have added your vote in support of adding this feature to our tracking. Thank you!
