  5. While the shape is selected, click inside the shape once the color is added (this ensures the shape is selected).
  6. Simply hit CTRL-V and you will be able to duplicate that shape with colors. Do this multiple times to add as many shapes as you like.
  7. Repeat this process for other shapes as added.
  8. Move shapes where needed and add text using the Text editor at the top center.
This process can be used when creating a SnapCharT® Template as well. Here is a link to that article:
