Is it possible to edit an existing shape in draw.io?

I'd like to use "Group" shape (mockup containers > group). However, the blue group heading is too narrow to write any longer word. I need to resize the blue heading and I can't figure out how to do it. I haven't even found an option to edit predefined shape's existing definition (or at least copy and use it as new custom shape).

With the current version 20.7.4 of Draw.io, the blue heading automatically adjusts it's size when you add a long title.

You can also grab the blue dots around the header to resize the heading block.
