I have changed the add shape to now behave like this. In the future it
might be best to create a whole toolbar just for drawing stuff but for now
this will do.
I did have some ideas about creating a way to have custom objects so that
you could create a title block from an image, a legend and a label, then
save it as its own object you can drop onto the canvas pre-built. However
that is a little out of my skills and time at the moment so I'll leave that
up to someone else to play with if they are game.
