There are two ways that you can add text to your diagram:

  1. Double-clicking in a shape to activate the text box, and
  2. Inserting a textbox using the Text tool.

The Type tool can be found in the main menu on the left-hand side of your Cacoo Editor:

When you click this icon, your cursor will change into a Precision Select cursor that allows you to click and drag a textbox of any size on the target sheet.

 

Once you finish dragging, the box will appear highlighted with a cursor inside, indicating that you can now type within this field.

 

Text boxes can be rotated by clicking the rotate icon above the shape and dragging.

 

Please note that unlike a shape, you cannot change the fill or Line Style of a text box.
