Place Text on a Sketch

You can place free‑form text anywhere on the sketch at any time. Here's how it works:

  1. In a sketch, tap the Text icon (  ) on the upper right. If you're using an iPhone or a similar device with a smaller screen, tap the fn key on your sketch keyboard, and then press text.
  2. In the dialog that appears, enter the text you'd like to place on the sketch.
  3. Tap Place Text.
  4. Now, tap the sketch canvas where you'd like to place the text. Your text will now appear where you touched the sketch.
  5. You can rotate and move the text as needed. Just switch to Modify mode (  ), and then tap and drag the text to move it around the sketch canvas. Or, tap the text and use the Rotation Control at the top of the screen to rotate and change its orientation.
