Give us the option to use Quick Properties for our own grouped assets

I see in Camtasia 2018 that pre-built assets come with a Quick Properties tab to allow users to quickly edit the text and colors of shapes etc without the need to drill down through the group to do so. It seems this option though is not available to users when creating custom grouped assets.
One of the biggest issues I face everyday is when I create a grouped asset and I need to edit it, because the Text objects are often quite tricky to edit, I can have difficulty getting to a text box that may be covered by several other text boxes etc. I often have to un-group, hide the top layers, edit the text box and then regroup. When I noticed the Quick Properties, I thought my issues would be resolved now. It seems that it is only showing for pre-built Camtasia assets and we cannot create our own. Please make this available in a very near future update in order to speed up our workflows?

YES! I would LOVE to be able to create assets with the Quick Properties exposed.

I asked about it last year when they came out but was told they are currently created with some kind of "special" and very complicated software...

The solution I found was to modify an asset to behave like I want but not all assets have all the properties (Title, colors, images).

And I don't know the limitations (number of text boxes, etc).
