Adding text to a shape
Shapes can represent abstract concepts, such as steps in a
procedure, or they can highlight part of a worksheet, but plain
shapes don’t communicate specific information well. You can
add explanatory text, such as one-word or two-word captions
describing the contents of a cell, to make your worksheet’s
contents easier to understand. If the standard formatting of your
shape’s text doesn’t meet your needs, you can always change its
appearance by using the controls on the Home tab.
