Remarks

A shape is stored as a reference to a font and to a character within that font. Essentially a shape is a single character of a compiled shape (SHX) font.

You must load the shape file before a shape in that file can be used in a drawing. Call IShapeManager::GetAvailableShapes to get the names of shapes loaded in the drawing.
