Re: text alignment

Is there any particurlar reason why the default text alignement is
I seem to set it to 'Left' most of the time anyway.

I would also like to see a better text box, the text box in Dia is unlike
anything i have used in other programs.
If the Dia text box actually highlighted text so that you could see it
then i think Dia could do copy/cut/paste of text based on context without
the need for seperate menu items.

I am also wondering if perhaps all the little suggestions i keep making
are somehow counter productive and that rather asking for lots of little
fixes Dia should be trying to reuse other peoples code or move to using an
entirely new Canvas widget?

Subject: text alignment

I would find it helpful if the text alignment options were
enlarged.  In addition to left, right, and center, I would
find top and bottom options useful, so that e.g. top,right
would place the top right corner of the text bounding
box.  (Like for placing zero width boxes in the LaTeX
picture environment.)
