I would like to create custom shapes like those included with the Visual Studio 11 beta Storyboard plug-in.
These shapes appear to have rules about their behavior during resizing. For example, the Dropdown shape in the Common group of controls, has these resize behaviors:
* resize width only
* do not resize text
* do not resize the triangle near the right side of the shape
* maintain a constant gap width between the triangle and the right side of the control
Is there documentation on creating shapes with resizing rules?

I don't see VS 11 beta Storyboard plug in, would you tell us where do you get the plug in? This will help people understand the situation.

Thanks Ivan. The first link does help.
If I understand correctly, the resizing behavior is described through metadata.
The metadata "...is just entered as notes on the PowerPoint slides containing your authored shapes."
The second part is a bit opaque. I expect the description of resizing behavior must follow a predetermined format. Are there examples of metadata describing resizing behavior?
