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 process shapes to always display the names of X variables above the shape and the names of Y variables below the shapes. 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.
