This short documentation will present the support for custom representations available to Papyrus users
The goal of the sympbol support in Papyrus is to give users access to some custom representations. They can use their own representation, i.e. their own svg files, in their diagrams, so the model can be easily read and understood. SVG file format was used, as this vectorial format scales easily.
