Debugging I.MX RT 1050 with MCUXpresso

I read that MCUXpresso does not support software breakpoints for code placed in Flash (e.g. QSPI NOR Flash). Is this true?

This can be a significant limitation (when available HW breakpoints are not enough), since we would like to use XIP from QSPI Flash, and code size will be significantly bigger than internal RAM size.

I read that Segger tools can place SW break points in Flash (it is a matter of being able to rewrite flash sectors), is there any plan to include this feature in next MCUXpresso release(s) ?
