Re: Text within objects are not selectable?

Imagine if you could only backspace, and delete deletes all the text.   That is how it was once.

I think they are working on it.  You can be sure everyone wants it.  I assume it is complex to implement because you have to create lines of communication with the OS (not just one OS either), whereas the current method does not require all that.

Let me start my mentioning how great this diagram software is. I wanted to know if there’s any way to select (highlight) chunks of text within objects and therefore be allowed to execute cut/copy/delete on that highlighted text. I use this to diagram our lab network and it’s important to be able to cut/copy as well as delete specific chunks of text without actually using backspace repeatedly. If this is not an implemented feature I would like to participate in trying to make it work.


Thanks for all the hard work,
