To edit text, double-click on it.

Text formatting tools are located in the 2D Properties tab of the Inspector. The font size will remain the same if you choose another scale in the Project Settings dialog.

To resize or rotate a text box, move the corresponding handle on the object's frame.

Text boxes added to the project are listed in the Project Tree. In the Project Tree, you can lock text or make it invisible.
