Motivation for having a 'text color' that is invisible


I'm not sure if the following use case for why an 'invisble' text colour is needed, but I have a vague memory that one was needed from a long time back. The use case should probably be added to a bugzilla issue, but I'd like to mention it here first (and maybe someone can remember which issue..).

Here's the use case. I wanted to draw a timing diagram, and used the Chronogram block. However, that block automatically shows various numbers and I want to have arbitrary text instead of numbers. The solution I chose now was to set the text colour to the same value as that of the background. This will however not work if the background varies, or if it is later changed.

So to summarize, this is a situation when I would have like to be able to set the colour of the text to 'invisible'.

I hope the description of the use case makes sense, and if there are other solutions please let me know.

Best regards
