Place object in BPMN model

BPMN contains a multitude of symbols. Therefore, only the basic symbols are displayed in the modeling toolbar. During modeling, only the symbols that are allowed are displayed in a logical order.


  1. Click on the relevant object symbol in the modeling toolbar.
  2. Click on the position in the model window where you want to place the object.
  3. Select the relevant symbol. The symbol currently selected is highlighted.

    If multiple symbols are allowed, they are offered for selection. If only one symbol is allowed, it is placed. If no symbol is allowed, a prohibitory cursor is displayed.

  4. Enter the desired name.
  5. Once you have entered or selected a name, click outside the object.

If you set a grid, the object symbol will be placed according to the grid width.
