Change type of text layout item (Text, Rich Text, Action Text, Hint) without having to delete and recreate

I have found that as I develop apps, I frequently want to change the way I interpret a text cell from one style of text to another. This results in what feels like a lot of time-consuming busy work which could be eliminated if it was possible to just change the interpretation (the type) of text.

There may be other examples of this kind of problem in the programming interface, but at the moment that is the one I am facing…

You’ve got my vote!


For sure! For me it’s the inputs. When I create a default form, the inputs always default to text entries…would love to “swap” components on the fly so I don’t have to recreate and reorder the components.

Yes, the unique inputs are even more important to preserve .

Yes please!
