Description l0f4r0 2019-03-08 07:14:14 UTC
Suggestion: it would be great to be able to move the connector labels freely.
I mean user could select each connector label independently and position it very precisely with the mouse or the arrow keys.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a connector between 2 shapes
2. Edit a label to the connector
3. Try to move the label

Actual Results:
User can only move the connector labels according to mathematical formula (spacing to borders...).
Otherwise, user should create an independent text area.

Expected Results:
User should be able to select the connector label with his mouse and move it anywhere he wants (with the mouse or arrow keys).

Reproducible: Always
