Make it easier to change shapes
I would like to see an option where I can keep the text I have already typed and formatted to remain if I decide to change the shape (without having to copy/paste, drag a new shape, etc)

I would like to further add the to this idea.
Adding a keyboard shortcut to resize selected shapes would be useful. Just as you can use arrow keys to move selected shapes perhaps adding Ctrl and Alt shortcuts for expanding and shrinking could be done? Examples follow:
Arrow Up = Move shape upward by 1
Ctrl + Arrow Up = Top side of shape extends upward by 1
Alt + Arrow Up = Top side of shape shrinks downward by 1
Arrow Right = Move shape to the right by 1
Ctrl + Arrow Right = Right side of shape extends to the right by 1
Alt + Arrow Right = Right side of shape shrinks to the left by 1

To add to this idea, with the recent huge and great change to PF, make the shapes themselves auto-size to the text that is put in when creating a new object. Before the text would be hidden, now you can see it go past the object, but perhaps have the object size when created be bigger then it's default size if there's more text then can fit in the default size.
