How do I just add some free text?

I am starting to try Visual Paradign, but I am baffled at how to perform this very simple operation.

How do I add free-floating text? I believe that this can be done in basically any other UML editor, and I assume it can be done in VP, but I cannot figure it out.

I was able to add a box into which I can type text, but I need to be able to add text without a box. Sort of like the text tool in Photoshop.

I hope that makes sense.


Hi mistertog,

The Text Box is the tool for you to enter free text. I guess you don’t want the border, am I right? To remove the border of text box:

  1. Right click on the text box and select Styles and Formatting > Formats… from the popup menu
  2. Under the Foreground tab, edit the line style by choose “0: None” to be the style
  3. Click OK to confirm editing

Hope this helps!

Best regards,
