Double-click the 'T' icon in the toolbox and set your default to Left there.

Already done it.
What i am aksing is has everyone else changed the default too and would
Left aligned be a better default.

We've been considering such a thing, where to edit text, you first have to
select the text and then click again to edit.  This would solve a number of
problems with editing, such as single-key menu shortcuts getting in the
way, good cut-and-paste, allow for text field navigation etc.  It's
definitely a good idea.

i might just file a feature request for 'better text widget' or some such

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?

I don't know of a better Canvas widget.  ANd many of these suggestions are
not really about the canvas, but about how Dia objects behave.

I was thinkng code reuse, avoiding redundant effort  and stuff.
