You can make the text label fixed by right-clicking on it, then select "redefine",
click on any place on the canvas and then accept all the defaults.

Also, it is possible to create a fixed label from the beginning:
- click on the "text" button
- click anywhere on the screen
- enter "%1" (without the double quotes) as text
- click on "next"
- click on "argument 1"
- click on the point whose coordinate you need
- click on "X coordinate"
- click on "Finish".

Of course you can enter any text instead of %1, e.g.
"The ratio is %1."
