Is it possible to add text on the dashboard?
I have 6 pots on my dashboard and it would be nice to get a visual with the operation of each.

The LED's show their handles but the pots do not.

Under Component Libraries /Creation you will find what you need such as "Label". Drag it where you need it and enter whatever you wish.

In my opinion, Static Text is the best-looking text.
You can set the text within properties and/or within a flowchart on the fly.
For example, the Three ch temperature logger App developer project used static text for all the text including the three temperature values that change colour depending on the temperature values.
The static text also shows the pot values on the General purpose I/O board projects
