    Yes, make the shape a place-able graphics file. Place it many times in the doent. Update the shape in a graphics program. Use the Links palette to update the link to the file.

    PS: Symbols in Illustrator behave this way, but there is no directly comparable technology in InDesign.

    Mike, thanks for the help. One more thing. I did create a place-ble graphic and copied it around the doent. Later on I tried to scale up the original graphic and after updating the links in ID I could see only a part of the "symbols". It seems like the program kept the size of the original frame. Do you know a way to update the new size as well.

    Many thanks
