This tip from David Edward Gaskill illustrates how to attach text to views in Inventor.
Have you ever added text to an IDW or DWG file in Inventor and moved the view, only to have the text stay and the view move? Here are a couple of tips to keep your text attached to a view so that the text moves with the view.
Method one involves adding leader text and removing the leader.
Add a leader and select the edge of an object in the view you want the text associated with.
Right-click on the leader and select Delete Leader. The text will then look like regular text and it will move when the view moves.
Method two involves creating a sketch, but make sure the view you want the text attached to is selected. With the view you want the text associated with, select Create Sketch. Make sure you pick the view first; you should know when you get the border around the view.
Select text and add the text to the dialog box. You can project edges in the view and add dimensions to tie the text to an edge with a desired result.
Right-click and select Finish Sketch.
Your text will then move where the view moves. Heads-up tip: To edit the text, you will have to edit the sketch, then edit the text inside the sketch.
