Paste custom icons from the Windows clipboard in Network Atlas for SAM

Table of contents

You can paste graphics from the Windows clipboard into Network Atlas maps, and display an overlay behind them to depict their status.

Icons that you paste into Network Atlas are saved to the SolarWinds Orion database, and made available for reuse in other maps under the "Imported" icon grouping. Pasted icons saved to the SolarWinds Orion database can be used by remote instances of Network Atlas.

The added icons are also saved on the SolarWinds Orion server in the path %APPDATA%\SolarWinds\NetworkAtlas\Maps\Orion\<orion server address>\NetObjects\Imported.

%APPDATA% is typically located in C:\Users\<logged on user>\AppData\Roaming

  1. Open the icon image in a graphics program, such as Visio or Photoshop.
  2. Copy the image to the Windows clipboard with the Copy command.
  3. Open the appropriate map in Network Atlas.
  4. Paste the image as a new object following these steps:
    1. Right-click on the map and then click Paste.
    2. Select Paste the Image From the Clipboard as a New Object.
    3. Enter a name for the image.
    4. Click OK.

Delete a custom icon

  1. Determine which file on the SolarWinds Orion server contains the icon (for example, mypicture.wmf).
  2. Add .del to the file name (for example, mypicture.wmf.del).
  3. Start Network Atlas on the SolarWinds Orion server to delete the icons from the database.
