iOS Keyboard Workflow Idea

Right now, in order to use the editing options like H1, H2, Bold etc. on the iOS keyboard, I have this handy editing button at the top right of the keyboard which changes the keyboard to show special editing keys. This is great and I use it a lot while writing on my phone.

One thing I really like about the default iOS keyboard is that I can just tap and hold on the 123 button on the bottom left, drag my finger to a number or symbol, lift my finger and that character is typed and the keyboard switches back to ABC mode. This makes my typing experience a little more ergonomic.

If the same behaviour can also be done for the Bear editing functions, I would love it.
