Try this on for size:

File->New Resource->New Template, choosing a template that is a good match for what you want

Click on the Text tool, then somewhere on the document.

Bring up the Style : Text inspector (cmd-1). Select the Resize to Fit option, and turn off Wrap to Shape. It should look like the first illustration.

Now save the document as a template with the Save command, naming it appropriately.

Create a new document from that template, using File->Template Chooser

Enter your ideas as text in the outliner, or by clicking in different spots on the canvas.

When you've got them all done (they'll just show up as plain text), go to the Canvas : Selection inspector (cmd-3). There should be a box labeled 0/<however many objects you created> with just a little speck in the box (see second illustration). Click on the box, and all of those items will be selected.

Go to the Style : Lines and Shapes inspector (cmd-1) and pick out the shape you'd like used for your boxes. Be sure to check the Stroke box, and make any other changes to the rendering.
