There are several similar requests for anchor points on a page - hopefully all the requests will be combined!

We have added options to the rich text editor to change the color and size of text on the page already.
We are working right now to enable on-page anchors.
We won’t be adding a way to edit page source, nor embed arbitrary HTML or tags like in the previous content or script editor web parts.
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.
Anchors should be a standard feature of modern pages

We’ve recently released new Title area layout options for modern pages which will allow you to make the title area both much smaller, or showing a larger image. This does not impact the Site header above the pages. However we are also working on other options for different Site header sizes also.
