Label Tool: #Fill Name

I have used 4x4 Slabs with Cover Fills and the Label Tool to post the name of the fill (#Cover Fill). I would like to do this in a 2D Worksheet with a 2D fill using the Fill Tool. But there is no "#Fill Name" for Autotext Labels. I am requesting the "Fill Name" parameter to be available in the Fill Tool. Type and Category is already available. It is not a high-priority, but it could be added easy, right?

Create a Building Material with the required fill. You can then change the fill in the 2D worksheet & label it with the Building material name

That is much more work than I want to dedicate for a simple task. I have no desire to create a huge raft of Building Materials that I won't use. I just want to identify a fill. I was thinking of creating a 2D Worksheet to show many of the Fills available that cannot be represented by a tiny icon. Then put this worksheet on the office Template for people to reference to know what fill would be best for their material. Having a label tool ID the Fill Name would be the simple solution. I have no idea why it has no autotext available. It just should.
