CMS within Text Span

For example if you want one word in the middle of a paragraph to be Dynamic content without needing to add 3 text elements to connect the second text element to CMS for the same result as if the text span would have been able to connect to CMS.

Not a big deal, but would be great to fix:))

    This is still a very welcome feature. I'll describe our use case for this. We have customer success stories on our website. They are in a caroussel on the homepage and you can click on one to go to the respective page with the full story. I want the title of that page to be
    <h1>Customer success story: {companyName}</h1>
    However, I can´t do this right now! Making two h1-tags to achieve this would of course be a nightmare for SEO.

    Add three text fields doesn't work when trying to create a dynamic H1 heading, for example. You can't add any more elements into a heading.

    And paragraph text that you convert to a span can't be linked to a dynamic field.

    This would make my life SO much easier, honestly shocked it still doesn't seem to exist? Makes creating many more complex landing pages incredibly difficult.

    Anyone aware of a workaround? That thread mentioned here was from 2015/16.

    Interestingly, found this - - Where someone from Webflow at the time says:

    "We wanted to support this functionality at launch but couldn’t get to it due to some complexity. In essence it’s like adding a span around a part of the text (in a paragraph for example) and having that text come from the database. We don’t have support for that yet.

    For now you’ll have to add a div, add 3 text blocks and float them all or make them all display: inline, and bind the middle one to a text field so it pulls from the database."

    So, if you ind this in the future, at least there's a wonky work around for now. You'd think 8 years on they might have gotten to this maybe hmmm... 🤔 Easier said than done, I'm sure.

    This would be a really big help and make a world of difference. It’s a major oversight for a basic functionality, in my own humble opinion. Please do address this.
