For example, I want to be able to drag a General Rectangle or a UML Class 1 object and edit the text, then insert a clipart image from the "Clipart / Computer" section into the object.

I know I can drag the clipart image on top of the object, but if I tried to auto re-arrange the layout I'd have to fix all the image positions which could take time.

Is there a way to insert clipart images into these objects that I don't know about? Or a way to reference these images by URL, since that's the only way I can seem to embed images right now?

You can use the Google picker (4th icon from right on toolbar) to add images, as shown in this video.

Thanks, that works for the Rectangle.. for the UML Class 1 object, I copied the URL from the Clipart's Style URL to insert the image and it works for me. In the video it's mentioned that the URL is for a cached image so I hope that the image will always be there in the future? – Kathy Mar 11 '13 at 18:24
Yes, these are persistence image URLs. – David Mar 16 '13 at 20:25
