Does anybody know of any RNA secondary structure visualization software which can do all of these?

For example, the following popular programs do not work:

VARNA is interactive and can color bases, but it only has the option to save structure files, NOT visualization coordinates. So if I interactively edit the visualization (move some helices around, etc.), I cannot save those changes. I'd have to start from scratch, from the raw .ct/.db/.bpseq file.

RNAfdl allows you to color positions, but the GUI for pushing around residues/helices is very slow and cumbersome.
