Personal Templates

Personal templates are time savers for repetitive content required in diagrams.

Designer supports the creation of personalized templates, which can contain any type of shape and drawing from the canvas. Personal diagrams can be promoted to Global templates by a Designer Admin.


A – Create the content you want to create a template of and click the TEMPLATES tab.

B – Select the content and drag & drop into the Personal templates area.

C – The personalized template will be visible now.

D – Click the pen icon to manage your templates.

E – Provide a name to your template, which will be shown during a mouse-over. Click the trash icon to remove the template.

Using templates containing big image files can have a negative impact on the startup performance of Designer.
