You could enable copying and pasting in the text fields of labels and pick lists. Now all long texts have to be entered manually.

You can use Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V for that.

There is an important part of this that no-one here mentioned. After you copy your component(s) and want to paste it into another app or part of the same app, you must select a relevant component to paste it into, like a screen or an arrangement. If you attempt to paste into a button or an image, you will corrupt your app.

Also, don't paste objects into Table Arrangements, same problem as above.
