    How do I add a Yellow Text Tag?

    In the stencils that are provided with Visio when you double-click them a
    text box appears below the stencil for you to type in, complete with a small
    yellow tag that allows you to reposition the text around the stencil.

    I have been trying to figure out how to do this with some stencils that I
    have made myself for the last two hours and just can not figure it out!

    Please help before I go insane.

    those are "annotations" and are stored in the pagesheet object.

    Re: How do I add a Yellow Text Tag?

    Are you refering to the yellow diamond with a tooltip that says "Reposition
    Text"?

    If so, this is a Control Handle. Some Visio shapes have these built in to
    allow easy text positioning. Adding one to your shape involves making some
    changes in the Shapesheet. You can view the Shapesheet of a shape by
    choosing Window > Show Shapesheet. In particular you need to insert a
    Controls section. Take a look at the Shapesheet for a connector or other
    shape with the control handle to see what formulas you must enter in the
    section.
