    Are there any workarounds for this? It's frustratingly useless.

    I end up having to dig around in the YAML file by hand and cross reference opaque ID strings.

    Please consider bumping the priority on this issue!

    Very useful, yet this hasn't worked ever since I first started using Unity (probably at least since version 4).
