Double click on angle handle of a shape to fit text

0 votes
Hello everyone,

it would be convenient if I could double click one of the angle handler of the shapes in order to expand the size of the shape to fit the text inside it. The direction of the expansion would be determined by the double-clicked handler (for example if I double-click the bottom-right handler then the shape would expand in this direction).

This idea remembers me the auto fit feature for columns and rows in Excel, and it came on my mind building an UML diagram. I know there is an option to auto fit shapes yet (File > Preferences > Editor > Dynamically adjust node size to label size) but with this new feature I would be able to adjust node size only when it is needed, and not always.

Thanks for the attention
