ArcGIS PRO Layout Text Improvement

    It would be helpful if Text elements added to a layout be more descriptive than "Text 1, Text 2, Text 3,". 

     

    I'd like if each element had the first word or two or, if possible, the full text  element so for example:

     

    • My Maps Title is:  "Competitor Leases in Permian Basin Area of Interest".  Instead of the TOC Text showing "Text 1",  It might show "Competitor Leases..."  
    • Another Text element in my layout is my company's address. Instead of "Text 2" in the TOC, It Might be "123 5th St...
    • Another Text element in my maps Layout is "Area of Interest" which is above an inset map. Instead of the TOC Text showing "Text 3", It' Might show, "Area of..." 

     

    This would make selecting and editing specific text elements more user friendly.
