  1. Select the object in the drawing space.
  2. In the Design Director select Graphics in the upper pane and select Create New from the toolbar or local menu.
  3. Accept the default name or assign one that will help you recognize the object.

All objects you add to the Design Director will appear in the lower pane. The lower pane contains the following options: img
