Hi Ranjan,

This is a common problem in other DTP apps as well. :)

Another approach to the one suggested by Craig is by using 2 frames. 
One for the text (that will remain editable at all times). One for 
the frame itself (or draw a rectangle).

This can be easily put into the album for further use.

Once satisfied, group the 2 frames for easy positionning.
