7.2.1.5 The Text Tool

The text tool is the square icon with a capital N in the top left corner. Use this tool to place text objects on the EER diagram canvas. Click the tool, then click the desired location on the canvas. After a text object has been dropped on the canvas, the mouse pointer reverts to its default.

To add text to a text object, right-click the text object and choose Edit Note... or Edit in New Window... from the pop-up menu.

You can manipulate the properties of a text object by selecting it and then changing its properties in the Properties panel.

To activate the text tool from the keyboard, use the N key. For more information about text objects, see Section 7.3.7, “Creating Text Objects”.
