Tie the field(s) to the cursor on doubleclick or special button. Then the
user can move them around at will (but not rotate them). Or, you could do
the same thing by having a 'selecting it' button, then they could resize it
as well. Of course, then they would have access to the properties, too,
unless you can find a way to prevent double clicking.

Sorry. I looked for the post/article about unicode parsing, but I must have
deleted it. But I think 'the answer is out there.'
