    I am trying to use texts for labelling in my wafer. As it has many components, it would be easier to distinguish components.
    I found this discussion on the forum but it wasn't helpful for me. So can someone please guide me with this?

    thanks!

    The above forum post is concerning doing it via script.

    The easiest way is through the GUI:

     Edit | Mode | Instance (or push Instance in the toolbar)
    

    choose the Library = Basic

    choose the Cell = TEXT

    click on PCell, then enter your desired Text.

    Choose the physical layer you want the text to appear on.

    Also note that the text has to be design rule clean if it appears on the wafer. DRC violations can wreak havoc in the fab (low yield etc.). So I made myself a simple alphabet which has worked from 400nm through 28nm.
