Camtasia feature request: "canvas grid", "annotation tables"

Canvas grid

Correct me if I'm wrong, but as far as I discovered there is no option yet to make a (snapping) grid visible on the canvas for easier positioning or lay-out elements, to name something. 

Like for instance in Illustrator. I know that's not a similar application, but why not would a grid comes in handy for Camtasia as well? 

Normally you would exclude the grid from the actual video, but I can imagine that in some cases it would even be nice to have the grid visible in the rendered video. 

The grid should also have the possibility to configure in pix vertical/horizontal, like for instance 5x5 or 10x10 or 50x50 px. 

Or am I asking something strange here?

Also in some situations adding text as a table (annotation) would be nice. Not always (bulleted) lists can give you the result you want. 

With tabs or spacing you can not always get the result you want.
Cell/table borders and fills are one step further, but not directly needed, not as important, since Camtasia is not InDesign :)

These features would be highly appreciated. As said, please correct me if I missed something and these features are already present.

Best regards,
