Mr. Shawn H. Corey Had the same idea and this seems to work perfect.  I found I can even send this same svg file to all my users so they do not have to bother creating one themselves.


Thanks to all of you for your ideas and input.

It would be nice if we could keep a library of simple objects that
could be quickly added via a menu or bar. In fact, it would be even
cooler if this was just a set of svg files in a directory that you
could easily add to (or some such).

You can achieve this by keeping the folder with your svg objects open and using drag and drop. I do it all the time and it works fine.
