Use of 'del' key


We recenlty introduced Dia as alternative to MS-Visio for making simple diagrams.

Although the program is very straightforward to use, I have one major complaint:

I use text boxes most of the time (rectangle with text in the middle). Very often the text needs to be corrected and the most intuitive way to do so is using the 'del' key for deleting the next character after the cursor. Unfortunately this deletes the whole textbox object right away. Fortunately with 'undo' you can quickly restore your 'mistake', jump one position to the right and use the backspace key instead.

However, this is not a very practical way of working.

Can something be done about this, or am I using Dia not in the right way?

Many thanks,
