What features would you like to see in Pixelmator Pro?

I make a headline. I change it into curves. I have no trouble manipulating the individual characters, but, and here is my problem: it seems impossible to change the colour of the individual characters. Have I missed something or could this be something for coming releases?

Hi Republiken.
I ran into this a while back ( ... 16&t=15607).
Long story short: when Pixelmator Pro (1.3.4) converts text into curves, it creates a single compound object that contains all the letters. This object can only accept a single style. If you want to style the letters individually, expand the compound object and drag* the letters out into a group. You will then be able to style them individually.
Hope this helps.

*I can’t think of a faster way than dragging the letters out of the compound object. Maybe you can.
