I'd like to see the "dynamic text" feature enhanced in Data Driven Pages.  It would be nice if it respected attribute field domain values.  Currently, if you add dynamic text that references an attribute field it retrieves the code, rather than the domain value.

For example, if you have an attribute field called "Status" with a corresponding coded value domain associated with it like the one listed below...

1 = Proposed
2 = Active
3 = Retired

When you add a dynamic text tag to the data driven page, i.e. <dyn type="page" property="Status">, it reveals the code rather than the domain value.   It shows "1" instead of "Proposed".

It could be nice to have this as the default... but you can select the domain value:
<dyn type="page" property="attribute" field="<Field Name>" domainlookup="true"/>

I came across this just yesterday because I was having the same issue.

Maybe swap it around (so you can still select the coded value if needed?)

Hope this helps in the interim.
