Sentences written into the text object are not word wrapped. As a result, you may end up with a very long horizontal box in your diagram that displays the sentence in one line. And you can't reduce the horizontal size of the box in the diagram regardless of the Manual Sizing checkbox status.

How to repeat:
Create a text box object, and write a sentence. Then drag one of the corners of the box to reduce the horizontal length so you can make the sentence wrap into multiple lines.

Suggested fix:
When the text box object is resized on the diagram, the text inside it should wrap around according to the new box dimensions.
