Description Ljiljan 2013-05-22 15:18:29 UTC
Problem description: 

This is suggesstion for improvement.

When drawing objects, I need to press Enter in order to create free space for drawing; or draw different objects (lines, boxes...), group them and change their behavouor (as character). 

Steps to reproduce:
1. Write one page of text and you want to draw objects in between.
2. In order to create space, you need to press enter
3. Draw object

Current behavior:

No drawing canvas; drawing objects require pressing enter in order to create space.

Expected behavior:

Users could choose wether to use drawing canvas or not. Drawing canvas should behave as character, with possibilites o resizes on page.

Lowest - likely hard to accomplish and not going to benefit the majority of our users. Plus there is already a way to accomplish what you are seeking - just a bit slower
