Need plug-in-manageable text sub-ranges

For plugins to be able to manage sub-range contents of text in Text scenegraph objects (like we have in InDesign, e.g.), we’ll need some kind of plug-in-defined sub-ranges.

These sub-ranges would be maintained by XD (as editing occurs) and associated with a given plugin, so they can update sub-whole-text content for things like content generators and outside data connectors.

You might look at how InDesign does it.


Thanks for submitting this feature request. We will review it in the next round of reviews.

Thanks! I realize this is a fairly large feature request, but I honestly think XD won’t fulfill its full promise without it.
