Custom defined variables
The ability to create and use custom defined variables. If you had a pallet which allowed you to define <%myVar%> you could then insert this variable anywhere in your documentation and it’s value would be automatically updated.

It would be great if these variables could be the output of a script attached to a field too (see below).

Field handlers
Currently you can run a script if a element is clicked on. I'd like to be able to run a script (Applescript, JavaScript whatever) 'on load' or 'on modify' of a text field.

That way you could link your documents to a database and separate content from presentation. So when the page/canvas/element loads any field that has a ‘on load’ handler could call a SQL statement and fills itself with the result.

Conversely if you edit a field, the ‘on modify’ handler could run a script and insert the text back into the database.

Perfect for creating multilingual documentation, or when you have to update a navigational item on 50 wire-frames. Or when you have multiple people working on set of documents and want to have a single store for content.

Search and Replace across multiple documents
Boy that would save me some time too.
