Adding items

You can add entities and links to your chart. The items on your chart represent real world objects and relationships.

To add an item to the chart:
  1. To display the Insert from Palette pane, click the Home tab, and then in the Palettes group, click Insert from Palette.
  2. To add an entity, select a representation at the top of the Entities section, select a palette from the drop-down list, then drag an entity type onto the charting surface.
    Tip: To add multiple entities of the same type, double-click the entity type, then click the charting surface to add entities. To stop adding entities, press Esc. You can add multiple links in the same way, in the Links section.
  3. To add a link between two entities, select a palette from the drop-down list at the top of the Links section, click a link type, then drag between the entities.
