I cannot find the text box option in writer

For the life of me I can’t see where to find the text box option - either in the drop down tab in “insert” or as right click, anywhere…
Help please?

You don’t specify what version you are using.

However, in version 64-bit under Windows 10 -
In the top menu - it is in the Insert drop-down list.
In the Standard toolbar it is about in the center of the icons - square box with an A and lines.

After entering some text you can right click on a border mark to see a number of context options.

Is that what you are looking for?
