3) Make sure the "Text Icon" is selected in the upper Left side of the "Properties Pane Tree" (it should be selected already, when we selected to add text to the project)

4) In the "Properties Pane", scroll down and click on the word "Text", this will show a small box to the far left of that line in the text "Properties Pane", a small window will open, enter the text you want (example text = Howdy), then click "OK" to close the small text window, this should change the text in the main drawing area/window (example text = Howdy)

5) In the "Properties Pane", scroll down and click on the word "Font", this will show a small arrow pointing down, press the small arrow, & select a font that you want to use in your project (the small arrow, should show all the fonts installed on your specific PC)
