Hi Sudheendra,

Yes, you can create custom objects in ARIS. When you use the ARIS Architect you find the Symbol Editor under the menu "ARIS". With that you can create AMF (ArisMetaFile) files.

Hi Veronika,

Thank you for the information! I'll definitely explore the Symbol Editor in ARIS to create custom objects using AMF files. Looking forward to experimenting with it.

Best regards,
