It would be great to let objects (or at least texts) have configurable
margins around. This will let me attach text objects to other shapes and
automatically give them some space. Useful for labeling objects in
network diagrams without making them look klunky or having to insert
spaces manually. This could even be a general attribute available to any

Having - and handling - an extra attribute for every object just to
ensure text in some distance does not look like the right approach to me.
But having a margin property with the Text object could work and even
address an old request:

Interesting suggestion! If the margin value could be specified it would
be better (think: sticking a text to a box with a slim border vs a box
with a thick border).

I'm attaching a sample, just for exemplification.

Best regards, and thanks again for the hard work.
