We’ve rolled out an update to Motif’s macOS app that focuses largely on text box improvements:

Here’s what’s new:

Styled Placeholder Text

All text boxes now include placeholder text, using the fonts belonging to the selected design theme. When adding larger text boxes, via the new text layouts feature, the placeholder text includes both header and body styles. To edit the placeholder text, you can simply select and type over it, keeping the styles already applied.
