Thanks for the ideas, Bruno (and thanks @heringsfilet for the assist).
As mentioned, there is a workaround for your first two options, and we can talk about enhancing text controls to conform to user-defined formatting rules. I don’t know if we will go that far with it because it does seem more advanced than what we usually would do, but we can talk about it.
I have also added your vote for Layers. That’s something we talk more about once the new versions of the apps ship.
Keep the ideas coming @BS5660!
