Add text for all layouts

I am trying to add text for all instruments (like “Verse 1”) so I am using tempo markers. But when I enter the words “Verse 1” the tempo tool always adds “q = 72”.
Is there another way to add text that will show in all layouts?

All parts you mean? Yes Ctrl/Cmd-Alt-X adds System Text that appears for all parts, Ctrl-X is text just for the part you’re on.

It’s Shift+Alt+X for system-attached text and Shift+X for staff-attached text (Ctrl+X is of course the standard shortcut for cutting items to the clipboard).
