--- Comment #2 from Heiko Tietze <[hidden email]> ---
When the shape is in selection mode you likely want to move it around. If the
focus is somewhere else you can easily enter the edit mode - and per escape go
back to selection. In any case the shape selection is possible per click on the
border of the shape.

The alternative solution is how Draw handles this. Single click selects the
object, double click enters it. That's also true for text boxes: single click
selects, another double click enters. Feels less intuitive to me but would be
consistent.

Another idea is have larger zones on the object, i.e. when the user clicks at
the space where usually text is entered the edit mode is enabled and otherwise
the selection mode. That has to be accompanied with good feedback in terms of
an appropriate cursor.
