Edit context rules for mask groups killing us

Very frustrating that you can’t use node.attach{Text,Image}DataSeries on a shape that’s in a Mask Group in a repeat grid. You get:

Plugin Error: Target shape node must be in the RepeatGrids edit scope (immediate child of a grid cell or nested only in plain groups)

Outside of a repeat grid, one could probably ungroup, set the text/image data, and regroup to work around this, but inside, there’s no workaround.

This halfway defeats the usefulness of the whole data series scheme, since many graphics in a repeat grid will involve Mask Groups.

I totally understand where the pain is. Unfortunately, edit context rule exists because of the architecture of the app. So it will take us a long time to eventually lift this limitation.

Is it possible to give an estimation of when this will be rolled out?
