I am afraid what you would like to achieve is currently not supported and there is no suitable workaround I can suggest. We will appreciate it if you submit this idea as a feature request at our UserVoice portal
- this way the community would be able to vote and comment it and if the suggestion gains popularity we will consider its implementation for future releases. Thank you in advance.
