Improved Formula Editor/Bar

If the following features could be added to the formula bar in Anaplan it would make model building and maintenance a lot easier!

  1. Colour coded statements and keywords (e.g. IF THEN ELSE, line items, constants)
  2. Ability to indent and enter new lines. Particularly useful for IF statements
  3. Keyword autocompletion
  4. Ability to add inline comments into formulae as in virtually all programming languages

I'm pretty sure that keyword autocompletion has been created already as an idea, however I have included this for completion.

We have delivered syntax highlighting for formulas, indentation as you type in a formula, and type ahead capabilities. We offer the notes column in line items to write comments about the line item.
