Annotate Text - counterintuative

N/A
So you type a few characters like "abde"
You forgot the c, so you click between the b and d
(well you've just made that text box complete)
So, the program starts typing about halfway down as a new box.

I'm not finished the first box.

Behavior is exagerated when you have a grid and have the background set to Magenta.

Expected behavior, Have a nice box to type in that will resize as you go along.

The interface behaves as expected when you hit enter at least once, but not if it's a single line.

Ron,
There are two ways to start a text box.
There is single click as you are doing.
This defines a start point for text with no range.
In this case, use the arrows to move within the text.
You can also use click and drag to define a box to type within.
As long as you are manipulating the text within the box,
you can use the mouse to click to place more text.
Regards,
Rick B.
