The Node Style dialog lets you customize the display of one or more nodes in a diagram. You can display or hide incoming and outgoing arrows, the text label, border, fill color, and bevel, and change the typeface and font size. These options override any defaults set for in the Diagram Style dialog.

- Select one or more nodes in a diagram.
- Choose Set Node Style from the Diagram menu or the right-click menu.
- Select the options for which you want to override the default styles.
