Thanks for the tip. I got it to work. I was not clicking the corners
that is what I was missing.

Text annotations can be applied to a selected item such as a parcel
or a map. To add an annotation
to a map you must first select it by clicking on one of its corners. The selected map
border will turn
pink to indicate that it has been selected. (If several map corners are in the same
location just keep
clicking until the correct one lights up.) Once the map has been selected you can press
button that looks like a capital T to add the text and set its style. The text will be
placed in the center
of the screen. You can then drag it to the correct location. Click on the text to
select or deselect it.
More information is available in the Help. (Contents tab, "Using the Plot
View", then "Annotations")
