Converting Shapes and CAD Symbols into Components

Process engineering shapes don’t work like other Visio shapes. They have categories, tag formats, and other attributes that make your diagram more valuable. However, you might need to create your own shapes or modify existing Visio shapes to complete your diagram. To take full advantage of the Visio Professional Process Engineering solution, you can convert other Visio shapes or even CAD symbols (from an AutoCAD .dwg or .dxf file) to process engineering shapes so that they will appear in your model. The Shape Conversion command on the Process Engineering menu applies the necessary component information to any shape or symbol, as Figure 27-31 shows.

Figure 27-31. You can convert shapes from other sources, including AutoCAD files, to process engineering components with the Shape Conversion command.
