How can I add labels (text) to shapes I have created. I want to label buildings/structures.

Hello -

There's two ways:

Either add a new Text shape with the desired text, or

enter a 'Comment' for the shape currently selected and select the 'All' option for Element Labels in the Document tab of the inspector sidebar to the right.
