Shapes IV: Let's talk about text positioning

A basic network diagram.

Here is a diagram with a server that has connectors leading to other computers.

Notice the position of the word "server." For this shape, the default position for the text is under the shape itself.

But what if you want to change that position for the text? For example, can you move the word "server" so that it's above the shape itself, and not below it?

Yes, it is possible to reposition text that's associated with a shape. But before we show you how, we'll explain what a shape's text block is first.
