Description Armin Le Grand 2016-03-11 15:15:10 UTC
To reproduce:
- draw line
- keep selected, type some text, ESC to finish
-> text gets aligned to line, but sidebar only shows "Line" attributes

What is needed for lines selected (and all works already, multiselect with another object):
- Character (closed when no text)
- Paragraph (closed when no text)
- Shadow
- Line
- Position and Size

Thus - pretty much the same as for e.g. a filled ellipse, except "Area".
This worked in older version, someone seems to have had the impression that Text and other things make no sense for Lines what is wrong.

Tested with same results. What older version worked as you describe?

I guess it was my ex-GSoC student breaking this. Anyway, confirming
