for those of you who would like to add some more shapes to 
their toolbox, but don't know how to do this, here is a first

Comments are welcome.

Looks good. Figure 3 is a duplicate of Figure 2, but I think you 
meant to have a picture of the dialog specifying shape icon size?

Good work!

Rob, I'm sure your tutorial will be very useful. 
A question: when one exports a diagram to get a shape. the dialog for .png 
offers 22 for at least one of the sizes, many times it is the height, but
some other times it is the width. Wouldn't be better to accept what dia offers 
in order to get same aspect?.

Another question: Would it be convenient to explain how to change the .shape
file to get: fewer connection poins;  a "main" connection point;  a textbox,etc ?
