U4-11504 - When horizontal space is limited, labels on property editors take up too much space

It is possible to hide the label for the rich text and nested content property editors (possibly others). This is useful where space is limited (e.g. NestedContent, StackedContent and DTGE) and also for people using tabs to label. It would be good if all property editors had the same. I'd suggest a standard value for all property editors, rather than implmenting it individually for each property editor. This would provide the feature for future and 3rd party property editors.

I'm not sure the examples you provided are the best.. they both have the option "Hide label".

While I understand the need for hiding the labels in things like NestedContent, I would rather suggest that there is to display the label above the editor. As you can see in the attached screenshot it is completely opaque to me what I should fill into the RTE that's under the "Contact Form Header", that's a bad user experience for your editors.

So rather than the ability to hide the label for everything, maybe it would be better that there's a breakpoint where the label ends up on top of the field (3rd screenshot). What do you think?

An option to put the label on top of the editor would be great, but I still use "hide label" from time to time, on suitable editors (grid, sometimes NC etc.). Sometimes in combination with uEditorNotes, which then works as a label in some way.
