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.

Finding it very hard to push the adoption of Modern pages with so little control available. Even the abiluty to add anchors on a long page has stopped users in their tracks!
Agree with previous comments. Modern pages are very hard to work with. One expects that features of Classic would be available in a modern page (e.g. via Communication Site). In particular the lack of anchor points is very frustrating for end users who have to scroll through a long page
Poor User Experience is occurring as a result of lack of expected standard build functionality within a modern page.
Some of us really want to build corporate intranets on SPO, but we simply cannot when there is zero opportunity to bring modern pages into line with corporate brand guidelines.
Things that I miss most:
* anchors (e.g. for a table of contents),
* inline pictures,
* monospaced font (e.g. for code examples),

Yes, I agree, there needs to be more control over the Modern Page! I'm stuck changing the "Look" of my company's entire SharePoint site because the theme we were using creates black text on black background in the list preview web part, and I have not way to change the text color. So now I have to explain to the company president why we can't use the theme he chose.
I'm sure more controls will come with the web parts. The library preview webpart is the same, little control on the look, when we had so many options in the "classic" interface...
