How to reuse ArchiMate shape created in another diagram?

When I am drawing ArchiMate diagram under TOGAF Guide-Through, how do I re-use shapes that were created in another diagram?

Hi Elmer,

Thank you for posting. Let’s take the step Identify High Level Architecture Objectives under phase A as example:

If you want to complete the solution concept map by including the principles defined before, do this:

  1. In the diagram click on Model Extractor at the bottom right of the diagram.
  2. Select Principle.
  3. Select the principles in the Model Extractor window and click >.
  4. The selected elements are visualized in diagram:
  5. Carry on creating the diagram with the elements visualized.

Hope this helps.

Best regards,
Jick Yeung
