I think it would be a great feature if text linking were to be improved. Specifically it would be great to be able to link font and font size between texts. Text content would also be great.
This should also work across views and layouts in the same way that the replace value does.
Just to expand on this an easy solution would be to make the text link options separate from the text content link options. That way you would have complete control
A fix for the second issue would be to either allow only the current view to be purchased or have layouts work how views currently do.
