There are two ways of adding text to a shape. Type into the shape or add a textbox to the shape. It's not only a bit confusing: two way's to add text, but it also some disadvantages for the WYSING editing.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the attached file
2. Remove the text "Delete Me"
Textbox is on top of the text 'Delete Me'. The text can't be deleted without removing the textbox
Most ideally one way to add text into a shape

There is a text Hello world, but not Delete Me.

> There is a text Hello world, but not Delete Me.
You're right. "Delete Me" isn't saved (seems the fix the issue ;-). Anyhow steps to reproduce:
1. Open Writer
2. Insert a 6 point star (Insert -> Shape -> Star)
3. Double click into the start until so the text cursor appears
4. Type "Delete Me"
5. Right click the shape
6. Select "Add Text Box"
7. Type something like "Hello World"
8. Now try to remove 'Delete Me"
9. Save the file created: "Delete me" is gone.

Confirmed--there are two entry methods, and the context menu UNO commands do not correctly handle the Draw Shape's own text box so maybe a bit of an implementation issue.
Using the the context menu entry "Add Text Box" the text already entered into the Draw Shape is actually replaced with a new Paragraph.
Conversely the "Remove Text Box" does not target the text added to a Draw Shape when clicking into the shape, and only works against an "Add Text Box" entry.
adding -- uno:AddTextBox
removing -- uno:RemoveTextBox

1. As workaround for first bug: It is possible to "remove textbox" (then remove the "Delete Me" text that was written directly into the star).
2. Tried to change bug summary to more accurately reflect the problem.
