  3. Drag out another Tab Control (tabs) shape and glue its begin point Begin point image - green square with X inside to the first tab's end point End point image, which is plus sign in a green square .

  4. Repeat step 3 for remaining tabs.

    When you select a Tab Control (tabs) shape and type a name for it, the shape changes width to accomodate the text.
