I added a text box to a screenshot and I can't find a way to add a visible border around the text.

Create a rectangle first, w size, fill, outline to your liking. Then create the text. Center the text horizontal and vertical to the rectangle. Then group the 2 objects together (or flatten)

That will certainly work, although we have a tool called Callout, which is basically the shape tool and the text tool in 1 tool. The callout tool makes it really easy to add text box with a border.
