Adding text to the data frame in layout view
- Click the Select Elements tool on the Draw toolbar.
- Double-click anywhere in the data frame to give it focus.
- Specify the active annotation target on the Draw toolbar.
- Use one of the New Text tools on the Draw toolbar to add new text to the data frame.
The data frame is drawn with a special hatch symbol outline.
By default, text added to the data frame is added to the <Default> annotation group. You can change this by setting the Active Annotation Target (available on the Drawing menu) before you add your text.
