Tips:

      You can show and hide text by selecting View > Show/hide objects and selecting the Text option. See Showing & Hiding Objects for more information. 

      You can scale and rotate text as desired. See Text Properties for more information.

      Text always renders on top of all other objects, so you don’t need to set the rendering order.
