Chapter 8. Creating Network Diagrams > Storing Information with Network Shapes

Storing Information with Network Shapes

Network equipment shapes have default custom properties, which you can use to store data with the shapes. These properties include manufacturer, product number, part number, product description, and serial number. You can also define new custom properties for a specific shape or for all the instances of a shape in a diagram.

To view custom property information for a shape, on the View menu, click Custom Properties Window, and then select the shape. The shape's custom properties and corresponding data appears in the Custom Properties window. Alternatively, you can rightclick a shape, and then click Properties on the shortcut menu. You can define a new custom property for all the instances of a shape in a diagram by using the Document Stencil, which includes all the shapes in your diagram. If you edit a shape on the Document Stencil, the changes ripple throughout all the instances of the shape in the diagram.
