Organization and annotation in the blocks

I’m working on an application that started out as a simple idea but has become considerably more complex. That’s fine. I’ve got a pretty good idea of what I’m doing and how to make it work but organizing everything in the blocks is now becoming a challenge.

I’m wondering if there is a way to make notes in the blocks. For instance, I’m working on a screen that has a number of columns on it. If you click a certain button, one column will appear and the others become invisible. Click another button and a different column appears and the others are no longer visible.

I have all of my columns named and all of the elements within each column are named to correspond with the parent column. I’d like to be able to do two things. First, place all of the blocks associated with each column together with a title. And second, be to organize the list of elements on the screen alphabetically so that each button, list, label, etc… is easy to find. Right now that list is just a hodge-podge that you have to search through each time you make changes. I’m at a point that there are probably 40 items in it and it’s a bit cumbersome to go through.

Does anyone have a solution to issues like this? Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

For notes within blocks, see my suggestion for a feature request and the response to it which shows the already-available Add Comment feature:

It’s not clear to me what you’re wanting for the other aspect of organizing your blocks/components. Do you mean in the Design tab or the Blocks tab? A screenshot or sketch of your needs would be helpful.
