Lightroom: Book Module feature: Photo box to text box

Hi there. Started using the Book Module in LR 4 and I'd love to see the option to convert a photo box into a text box.

Think of the layout possibilities this would add to a 6+ photo page.

Thanks, keep up the good work.

Why going for this limited tweak?

I want to achieve exactly the same as you, but by a different route, much more versatile:
I want to be able to add templates defined by my own, with complete freedom how to put image or text cells, including dual borders.

Not sure why I didn't think of this before I posted, but it came to me shortly afterwards:

You can fill an empty photo box with text using the CAPTION of an adjacent photo, and using OFFSET to move the caption around.

I am totaly supporting the proposition of Cornelia. This is a real limitation of this module, whereas this possibility exists in most other software for book publishing for amateurs.
