TechDraw balloon functionality is now merged. Please test and report problems.
I installed the latest version I can get, 0.19.16207 (Git) and cannot find it. In which version number is it merged?

I have just tested the ballons and I am delighted! For my project I had ceated 33 symbols with only circles in different orientations and lengths - and I did by far not have the flexibility provided here. I will replace my handmade symbols and report back if I find any issues.

One idea could be to map certain chars to render as a divider... Not sure how practical that is though
You asked it, here it is: git commit 13c82aa67d468ad21fcc73fb56521161a2a15f68

Only implemented for Rectangle shape. Whenever you use "|" in balloon text it'll add a separator (you can use any number of them).

P.S. I used to add them in Inkscape. ;)
Mee too. It is the best way for now.
