I do not think I understand. Creating a text area is almost exactly as 
quick as creating a text line. The only difference is that you have to 
drag a rectangle instead of just clicking to place the text. That is 
the only difference I can see. If you just want to place a label, the 
size of the area is irrelevant, just make sure you drag it big enough.

Sorry, absolutely no way.
