Adding a New Symbol to a Library
If you imported a symbol from somewhere else or drew your own, you can add the new symbol to an existing library by simply dragging it from the page and dropping it in an open library window. Alternately, you can create your own custom library of images.
To create a library in SmartDraw, click on the SmartDraw File tab, scroll down to "Options" and select "Create Library".
This will display the "Create a New Symbol Library Dialog".
Here, you can name the library and select an existing category to place it under.
If you want to create a new category, select "Create a new category" where you can name your category and either make it a top-level category or a sub-category inside an existing category.
The new library (and category) is reflected immediately in the Symbol Explorer in the Left Panel under the "My Symbols" directory and the library is then opened on the screen.
Your new library window will show no symbols because it will be empty.
To add a device to your new library, drag the device onto the library window until you see the add library cursor, then release the device with the mouse.
Before your device is added to the library, you'll have the opportunity to give it a name, adjust the connection points, define how the device will be able to grow or shrink, and specify where you will be able to add text.
The new device symbol will appear as a button in your library window. You can edit its properties any time by right-clicking on it and choosing Edit Symbol, or you can delete it from the library by choosing Remove Symbol from the right-click menu.
