when i click the WordArt object and a WordArt toolbar appears...
it is missing (to my opinion) a button "Edit text". i didn't find this feature
in the icons bank ("add new icon to toolbar") and i miss this option on the menu
when i right-click the WordArt object.

i see MANY first grade students (young children) struggle to double click the
exact area inside the fonts. it very difficult to them. (at least you could have
it accept click all over the objects area :-)

If you have activate (having green handles) any drawing object (for example a
fontwork gallery object), then you can always switch to text edit mode with key F2.

It is a valid enhancement request to introduce a symbol for this. But I think,
that it would not belong to the fontwork toolbar but to the general drawing toolbar.

thank you for the F2 key tip :-)

and i understand way we have to click precisely inside the font area of the
object to select it. since, their could be under lying objects that could be
selected instead :-)

a general button for F2 could be great :-)
