Adding Text to Shapes and the Drawing Page

Most diagrams contain text as well as shapes. By default, most Visio shapes appear either without text or with placeholder text. Adding text or replacing the placeholder text is easy—you simply select the shape and type.

The area in the shape where the text appears is called a text block. When you start typing, a blinking cursor appears at the insertion point so that you can keep track of the text placement. The pointer changes to an I-beam when you place it over the text block, indicating that you can click anywhere in the text to insert new text, delete text, or select existing text to replace or format it.
