For a better overview if all/most Flexible Content Fields are collapsed it would be great to have not only the name of the Layout but also a name for this element.
E.g. if you create an element for a text area with the WYSIWYG-Field that you will use twice or more on a page and the elements are collapsed you can’t identify which element contains specific text.
How this could look like:
The “Layout Name” field is a standard field for this element and the input is show in the header
This is the look if all elements are collapsed
Thanks for the feature request, however I’m not sure how this could be added into the core without bloating the settings UI.
Perhaps this would be better left as a custom JS script?
The following tutorial shows how you can listen for an
acf/setup_fields event and run JS on any new HTML added to the page via ACF.
You could look at the input value, and then append it to the layout handle.
this helped me and now I have a great overview over my Flexible Content elements.
