Use the text tool to draw a large rectangle. Make sure that the text colour in Tool Options contrasts with the background. Make sure that the text layer is uppermost. Check that the font size in tool options is plausible, as is the choice of font. Do not play with the on-canvas text options at all during this process, use only the Tool Options dock. After typing some text check in the lyers dock that the text layer is on top and has layer mode Normal.
