Default Make your own stencils--especially words

I can't remember exactly how an instruction that I cannot find explained how to make a stencil from text. I do remember making the phrase a group which I do not know how to do. I also remember just sliding it over to the stencil tab or folder that you created. Can anyone go through this for me?

Type your text. Use the Pointer Tool and drag it to Stencils. That's it.
If you want to add an object with the text, then select the Text and Object together and drag to stencils. Not complicated at all.

This thread is more than three years old, but Gary described what you need to do:

If you're using CraftArtist instead of DSA, the procedure is exactly the same.
