Place the connector's begin point on the parent shape (the shape you are connecting from).

Place the connector's end point on the child shape (the shape you are connecting to).

When the connector is glued to the shapes, the endpoints turn red.

Add Text to the Selected Shape

Label individual electrical component shapes by selecting the shape and typing.

Modify the Property of Symbols

Select SPST switch, then click the Set switch position item in the context menu.

Modify the Property of Symbols

In the Shape Data dialog, choose a switch position.
