Is handler:edit-file what you're looking for?

I don't think that's currently possible, but you could use a
pasteboard with editor-snip%s inside and then style the text in a
text% in there.

Or you could try hierlist, with only a one deep hierarchy.

Neither of these ideas are particularly easy, tho.
