I am closing this report since there is actually a way to change text inserted via "Insert text" as explained in comment #2.

I think it is enough to be able to change the text via context menu, which works for me:

  • plot something
  • enable "insert text" mode
  • draw a rectangle with mouse
  • enter the original text in the pop up dialog and validate to have the text drawn
  • disable the "insert text" mode
  • right click on the text annotation and click text>string to obtain a popup dialog that will let you change the text.

Would we expect better (on-canvas editing?) or can we close this report?

It would be nice if the text inserted on a plot via the "Insert text" option from the QT graphic toolkit could be selected, deleted and/or edited after created
