Hello I am a novice user, can anyone explain to me how to add text onto a curved surface after i have boss extruded the say a cylinder?
Welcome to the forum

Are you looking to have embossed text on the cylinder or simply to show it as a decal? If it is to be a decal, you can choose "cylindrical mapping" to apply the decal.
If it is to be embossed text on a cylinder, create a sketch for the text from a plane inside the cylinder. Extrude it out using the "offset from surface" command. This normally works pretty well. If it doesn't you could extrude it out past the cylinder and then use a cut-extrude to slice off the extra.
The Wrap command will also work much likes Jeff's second option.
