Is there any way to change dynamically the text in the layout window based on a location in the map window ? For example, I need to set the name of the village in the layout window based on the name of the village in which falls its relative map window.
If it doesn't exist, I hope it will be taken into consideration in the next version release cause its very practical for printing. Same can apply for the scale of the map(as text) and the date of printing out.

If you mean during batch plotting, then look at Variable Text String Substitution in the help. We recently used this to plot incident areas with each plot having text dynamically updated to display attribute values from the features in the map window.

This feature is not implemented yet.
I would suggest you to submit this idea in the Ideation section (https://community.hexagongeospatial.com/t5/Product-Ideas/idb-p/ProductIdeas). So the team will be aware of your request and the other users can vote for it if they are interested too. The other possibility would be to create a development ticket (HGDN credits).
