Shapes III: Let's talk about text

Shape text being edited

How to edit text on a shape.

What about if you need to edit text that's already on the shape? You do things a little differently:

Callout 1 Double click the shape...
Callout 2 ... and Visio will zoom in on the shape text. Change the text as you see fit.
Callout 3 When you're done, click an empty part of the drawing page to return to the zoom level you were at before.
Callout 4 The new text appears on the shape.
