   This is an "is it plugged in?" suggestion. Is the text color the same

I don't think so, text objects work OK now and the text shows up.
When I hit F2 or Enter in a object I get the I-beam but the cursor
doesn't move when I type.

I'm beginning to thing that I simply haven't yet selected an object
which allows text entry.  If someone could point me at an object that
definitely does have text entry then I could try it.
In the "Flowchart" category, almost all objects support text entry
except the connectors and logical operators.


Yes, it does help!  I can enter text into the various flowchart
objects with no problems at all.

So that explains it, most objects (or at least most of the objects
that I'm interested in) *don't* support text entry.

How easy is it to add this ability to an object?  It would be really
handy to be able to label the network objects for example.  I know I
can create a tecxt object and group it with the Network object but it
would be much easier and quicker just to be able to enter text without
having to create another object and group it.
