Hey guys, sorry if this has been mentioned before, but are there any plans to add text layers, or improve the handling of text for normal layers, at any point? I've been using the excellent TextLayer module, but the more I build stuff from scratch in Framer, the more I would love a built-in, elegant, and maybe even autocode-supported way to add, style and align text.

Maybe it's just my workflow, but I use a lot of real data in my prototypes, so it's an area that would make a huge difference for me at least.

I am very interested in better text support too.

I'm aware of layer.html = "My text" of course, but it's also a bit of a roundabout way to get things right sometimes since it gets wrapped in an extra DIV there is no direct reference to in the layer instance as far as I can tell. I sometimes resort to adding my own <span> with inline styles to the html, which also isn't super elegant :)

There are, from what I've heard.

But it's a feature that's difficult to get right, so I wouldn't expect it anytime soon :)
