Word 2016 - Text next to arrows that point to text boxes

Word 2016/Win10:

Hi,
Please see the attached, redacted Word doc. I need to insert (in very small orange font) the word "DogID" below the horizontal arrow which point from Cats to Dogs. (I know it's a tight fit, but that's not my question. :) )

I tried to copy the instance of DogID on the left of the page, but I can't. In fact, it seems like it's tied into the adjacent text box. Unfortunately, it's been a while since I created this doc, and I can't recall how I entered "DogID" in the first place.

From this doc, can someone deduce how I entered "DogID" and how I'd get another instance of it below the horizontal arrow?

Thanks!
Steve

The likelihood is that the text was included in the graphic.  I suggest you re-do the "picture" without any text and add the text separately

John,

I figured it out! It's a text box without borders. What clued me in was the behavior when I clicked on the text.. :)

Text Box Without Borders
Thanks for your suggestion, which was entirely reasonable, given that I left out the behavior shown in the screenshot above.

So as long as the text is separate, you can move it where you need to

The text "DogID" is in a borderless text box. Clicking on the text shows the 'handles'. Move the mouse until you see the four-way arrows mouse pointer, and then click and drag the text box.
