For a custom element the following graphical properties can be set:


Show or hide the Name, the Description, or any custom attribute types that have been defined for the custom element type in the Custom Element Type dialog.
Properties of the text box for any of the attributes shown
Symbol size (width and height in pixels)
Color of the edge and the background




Model elements for which graphical properties have not been set are shown using the default graphical properties. Setting graphical properties overrides the default properties. View settings, on the other hand, can override graphical properties regarding visible fields.


If you have selected more than one custom element and you change the graphical settings, only those settings that have really changed in the graphical settings dialog are changed to all the selected custom elements. If the selected custom elements do not have the same values for the property, the value field is empty.


Click the More... button to open the Graphical Properties Dialog and define the additional graphical properties of the element.


Click the Save as Default button to save the current properties as the default graphical properties for the element type.


Click the Load Default button to apply the default graphical properties to the selected custom element(s).
