Something's wrong, as soon as we do this we get an illegal operation message
and the program shuts down, any ideas.
> 2) When prompted for a filename, click Cancel. You will be left with an

> 3) Click the Text Tool. Click where you want the text to start in your new
> box. Type your text.
> 4) The text will wrap after a short distance. Continue entering your text
> for now.
> 5) When done, press the ESC key or click elsewhere on the chart. This step
> is necessary to complete the entry of text; if you instead close the chart
> before doing this step, your text entry will be lost.
> 6) Click on your entered text and drag the right handle to adjust the text
> wrap position.
> 7) Repeat for additional text.
