Re: Pasting text into dia diagrams. Was: Re: hello

Hi Todd,

pasting text from the paste buffer in dia does not use 'ctrl+v', but rather 'ctrl+shift+v'.
I never understood this design decision ¹ either but it's the way it works for now.

¹  I think it has to do with the fact that:
        1. A selected text object in dia always has keyboard focus; and
        2. On top of that, dia always keeps short-cut focus.

I saw a discussion about text objects and focus a few weeks ago, don't know what
has become of it. Again, it would be best to have text objects get/lose explicit
keyboard focus. This way it should be possible to differentiate between ctrl+v on a
text object *with* keyboard focus (namely, paste text from the system's pastebuffer)
and ctrl+v on a text object without keyboard focus, namely a shortcut that doesn't get
handled and should dripple through to the diagram keyboard handler to issue a paste
of what is inside a dia copy buffer.

First of all I would like to get my email sending to this list, so
this is a test!
Second - Question - Dia does NOT have copy paste on the Win32 version,
cannot paste text into the diagrams?
