Add Profile Objects to a Diagram

After you have imported a Profile into the Resources window, the profiled objects (elements and connectors) and features (attributes and operations) are available from the expanded Profile folder in the window and from the appropriate pages of the Toolbox (click on the More tools button at the top of the Toolbox).

Similarly, when you import an MDG Technology, it adds the appropriate pages of profiled elements and connectors to the Toolbox.
