Features to Edit Modern Pages
There is too little control of a Modern Page. You can't control text size and coloring, you have limited format control, and most of all you can't *edit source*. I used this to drop in things like Image Maps or other HTML that there was no way to add in.
As we mentioned in the last update, we’re working on anchor linking for modern pages, and it should be available shortly. We’ll clear up the m365 Roadmap to ensure that gets added.
Text formatting is already available in the rich text editor on modern pages.
To create an image map you could use the image web part for a single link, but to make multiple links across different parts of the image, you’d need to leverage a web part designed to do that. There are partners and potentially open source web parts to create Image Maps.
If you have other suggestions (e.g. font selection), please search and vote for those, or open a new suggestion. Thank you.

Having page anchors is a must for navigation on landing pages. Please add ASAP.
One central thing would be the ability to align and resize images.
This is essential for proper page design.
Please bring back Anchors!

On-page anchors are a must-have.

What on earth did they take away the anchor tag capability? Please give us back as soon as possible. We really need it for best user experience. Thank you.
On-page anchors will be really useful and very attractive to our customers..

Where can we see the progress of "Working on it"?
What's the logic behind eliminating source/html options?
Can we please at least get collapse/expand options (x-ref: https://sharepoint.uservoice.com/forums/329214-sites-and-collaboration/suggestions/33253909-anchor-links-or-collapsing-sections)

And be able to take away a title block at the top of the page in order to see content more readily

A vote for anchors please!

Upvote for HTML anchors added.
PLEASE bring back anchor links!
Addind images is a very basic requirement...images are often a part of the content and cannot be placed out of context. Voted to add this functionaliteit.
Agree with Ronald, please update the 365 Roadmap as we rely on that information to make planning decisions for future solutions. Right now it has things marked "In Development" that are already deployed and should be marked "Launched" (e.g. Signals, Column Totals, Sticky column headers). These items never even went to the "Rolling out" status. Why have a public facing roadmap that has incorrect status and is missing things entirely?

@Admin - You mentioned you're "working right now to enable on-page anchors" but I don't see it listed on the SharePoint Raodmap ( https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/roadmap?filters=SharePoint). Can you point us to more information about this feature? If I knew for sure what you meant by "on-page anchors" and the timeframe for when this feature will be rolling out, I would be able to decide if we should wait for it or find another solution for our needs. Thanks.

Another vote for Anchor links!
When will the anchors be available ?
Is there a way to edit images inserted in to a text control in a Modern Page ?

Vote for Anchors
Thanks Admin! Any info on when the on-page anchors will be available??
I agree that the lack of control over formatting on Modern pages is frustrating. Not since the days of WordPerfect have I struggled so much to get things to look and work the way I want them to.
