You can type text into every single shape. Just select one on your diagram and start typing.

Also, you can double click anywhere in space on a diagram to add text there.

  • how can a shape be "captioned"? I mean, text in the shapes I'm using look terrible. – tedder42 Mar 4 '16 at 22:20

You basically have two ways to add plain text:

  • Double click on the canvas (or hit Ctrl+Shift+X) to insert a non-linkable text block, and start typing
  • Insert the text symbol (from General menu), and start typing

Any element can also have text, or be replaced into a pure text element by Alt-dragging the text element onto the other element.

Do note that the first version here is not possible to connect to other nodes, whilst the other is an ordinary node with ordinary connectivity.
