Yep. We do get occasional requests to include text functionality in Draw but I don't know what the plan is for incorporating it into the app. I'll definitely share your request with the product team.
In the meantime have you tried using Capture? I'm not sure how much text you're wanting to use, but you can save text as an image, bring it into Capture and save it as a shape, and bring that into a a Draw Layer in Draw (it will create a scalable graphic).
How much text are you wanting to bring in to your Draw composition?
I know this is old, but I've just searched everywhere for an answer to adding text to drawings and can't find anything newer.
Is there any plans to be able to add text layers to either the sketch or draw app? I just want to be able to sketch objects and then add a few text layers to label them. I may be missing something, but I don't understand why one of the apps doesn't have a text tool in the tool bar.
Thanks in advance for your response!
Although it does get requested occasionally, and may be considered down the road, there aren't any current plans to incorporate a text feature into either Draw or Sketch.
Currently the only way to bring text into the app is to bring it in through the Shapes menu (through Capture CC) or by bringing any file in to an Image Layer through the Creative Cloud Files folder. (Please let me know if you need instructions for doing either of those.)
I will share your request with the drawing teams.
