Working with draw objects

You can use the Draw tools to enhance your diagrams or maps with lines, shapes and boxes and to create your own symbols that you can install in the symbol libraries.

Objects you create with the Draw tools are not treated as symbols unless they are installed in the symbol libraries. They appear in Diagram or Map View, but don't have a corresponding topic in Outline View. Also, draw objects cannot have a note and you cannot link to them.

You can enhance draw objects just as you can enhance symbols. For instance, you can fill them with colour and change their line colour.
