How to open layout element property pane to particular subpanel?

I want a user to be able to click a button which will open the style properties for an element in a layout.


With a layout open, I can programmatically select the element from the layout (in this case, a text symbol), which will automatically open the ArcPro "Format Text" dockpane. This dockpane has multiple tabs and panels, however, and I'd like to have it automatically open to the "Text Symbol" tab's "Properties" subpanel. Is it possible to do that? Currently, it opens to the Text tab, and it takes several clicks to navigate to the actual font styling properties of interest.


I'd also be interested to know if there are other options for editing a layout symbol element's properties. Ideally, I'd like to open my own dialog/dockpane which has the contents of that particular subpanel from ArcPro's properties dockpane, but it doesn't look like that is accessible.
