Set data type on input tools - Macro input

We need a way to set data type on every input tool, but most importantly with the "Macro input" tool!


Making macros is a pain because of this.

When I click the Metadata tab on the 'Macro input' it's all wrong.

I've tried using the tool's 'Text input' to give example data, but it still comes out wrong. The length of each field is the biggest pain.

Putting a Select tool behind the input tool won't help, because the field is already shortened at the input.


Please fix this!

Maybe be able to change Type in the Metadata tab on 'Macro input'?
