Add a global custom property

You can define custom properties for the shapes and connectors in your diagrams.

You can also define your own global properties for your diagram, which work similarly to global variables, and whose values may be accessed by placeholders in labels and tooltips on shapes and connectors.

  1. Make sure nothing is selected in your diagram so you can see the Diagram tab in the format panel.
  2. Click on Edit Data to see the global custom properties.
