After you save a default data format for a specific shape type, the next time you add a new shape of the same type, it has the default data format.
Suppose you want transport shapes to always display the distance traveled below the shape. The following steps show you how.
You can apply default data formats to existing shapes.
After you create a data format, you can save it as a custom data format that you can apply to other shapes.
When you apply a custom data format to a shape, it copies the data format from the custom data format to the selected shape.
