I have found the Frame in node layout. This is great but the Text field in the node doesn't seem to work. This probably means I have no idea what I am doing wrong. I am using Blender 3.1.

When I type text in to the TEXT field, it throws an error message. So how do I get text into that field? Or a comment block into a frame at all?

The online manual says "This is read-only, so you will need to use the Text Editor to modify the contents." but I thought this meant the type in box directly on the field. But that doesn't work. (notice the error message at the bottom of this image)

Use the text editor to make a text then select the text in your node editor
