I don't think the problem is getting into text entry mode, I do get
the I-beam cursor in all cases, it's just that once I have got the

I even have an old, saved, diagram created with Dia which has text on
it and I can't edit the text.

I also have no idea how much computer experience you have,

Something like 50 years!  :-)   I worked as a Software Engineer in
various fields until I retired a few years ago.  Coming from a Unix
background I have become rather a Linux command line junkie.

                                                             the first thing I 
would ask is does the text box or whatever have the "focus" when you try to 
enter test?  (I don't know whether that is required, just something I would 
make sure to try.)

Yes, as far as I can tell.

I have now got text objects working as they should - I think.  

Can someone tell me what objects do have  in-canvas editing of text
