Drag text elements onto canvas similarly to sticky notes

Feature request: Rather than clicking on the text element, clicking on the canvas, then editing text and switching to another tool. It would be nice if, like the circle and sticky note, text elements could be dragged from the toolbar onto the canvas. Simplifies switching to and creating a new text element in one movement?

The T shortcut is pretty much equivalent anyway, this is sort of unnecessary.
