💡Feature Idea: Text fields at the end of a connection

1. What you want to be able to do in MURAL

I would like to be able to add text elements to the end of a connection via the "smart options box". When I do it manually (as shown in the screenshot), I can already add a "title" text box to the end of the connection.

I want to be able to select a text field ("title") without a shape around it. Ok, there's a workaround by using a shape and setting the contour to invisible etc., but mind mapping could be so much easier if I was able to select a title from the proposals. I've mocked it below just for illustration purposes

2. The problem you are trying to solve

For example for mind mapping in MURAL, it would be helpful to be able to add texts to the end of a connection. It's currently necessary to use shapes or stickies to do so.

3. Why this helps everyone (or many people)

I think at least some MURAL users use it for mind mapping and they might be a little happier if they had to do less steps to use texts at the end of a connection ;-)
