Adobe.com is very vulnerable to feedback on non-English speaking countries. In future Lightroom programs, I would like the menu for spilled tone to be developed in areas such as highlights, midtones, and shadows.

I'm not sure I understand your request. Split tone splits the image in two tones: highlights and shadows. These two can then be coloured separately. The names 'highlights' and 'shadows' are already used. There is no 'midtones'. The slider in the middle sets the threshold of what is considered a highlight and what is a shadow.

Johan,
This is a common feature in virtually every color grading platform (including capture one) that Lightroom is missing. Midtones are essential for grading, even better would be gradient toning...

OK, now I understand the question. The remark about non-English speaking countries confused me, because it has nothing to do with the request..

BTW; Split toning is another word for 'dual tone' (like Photoshop has) and dual is two. That's probably where it originated. Of course you could say it needs midtones as well, but why stop there? Why not five zones, why not seven? I agree that gradient toning would be a much nicer addition.
