I am looking at the CSV import. The info page says no complex shapes. Does that mean that if I have a shape with child shapes (like a box with a small hexagon to the upper right), I cannot use it?
I am trying to accomplish an import of different types of components, where the components use shapes with decorations/stickers in the corners (for deployment, managing vendor, etc). I have created the basic shape for the component (by editing the mxgraph xml and importing) and then adding the shape to a shapelibrary. I want to generate a set of these shapes based on some text input.
Example box data (excluding relationships):
Sales Order Management;External;Central;IBM
As other routes go, I have thought about trying to script the creation, perhaps creating a plugin, perhaps like SQL import. But CSV import seems to do pretty much what I need.
Another option would be to use text generation and then change the shapes manually, but not so good.
Or perhaps use the update plugin, if that could edit the shape type. I have not checked it deeply yet.
