Resource centric icons are a set of graphical icons that appear in diagram to help you perform certain functions in quick. A well known kind of resource icon is those surrounding shapes, helping you to create new shape from an existing one, with connection added in between. There are also other kinds of resource icons, which help perform operations like to align shapes, to pin a connector end, to create reference/sub-diagram or to split a connector by introducing a new shape.
Although resource icons are so powerful, some users might want to hide them so that the diagram will look tidier throughout the navigation. Some users might get used to the traditional way of performing the functions they want, and they do not need resource icons’ help. To them, they would rather prefer hiding the resource icons.
