How do you edit the categories in venn diagrams

I can create a simple two category venn diagram with a template. How do I add categories or change the size of individual category circles or change the colors of the categories? I can create and edit shapes, but then I have to manually create a legend and manually arrange them. It appears that the circles are some kind of uneditable background.

I think you gave answered your own question. These shapes can be edited individually but they exist as a separate background layer and aren't linked to each other or to topics or other map objects.

Hi Mark, 

The circles in the default templates are locked. You can view background objects in the Map Index by clicking the Elements tab, then you can unlock them by right clicking the objects in that menu.

For more help with background objects see:

Hi Mark, I stumbled over the same issue. I would have expected that the Venn Chart considers more practical & professional needs. This simple chart is actually useless.
