Default Area, perimeter, and color in shape data

Hi everyone,

I have Visio Professional 2007.

First, I don't have great skill yet in making shape data. But also, I
would like to have the following data show in the shape data for various
geometrical shapes (like squares, rectangle, or circles, for example):

- the area of the shape

- the perimeter of the shape

- the color of the shape

Now, I understand that I can go to Tools Add-Ons Visio Extras
Shape Area and Perimeter to get the first two items. I also know that
this information will change dynamically as I alter the shape. So far,
so good.

Moreover, for the color, I know that I go to Format Fill Color
More colors Custom to see the color information.

But I would like these three pieces of information to show permanently
on the shape data for the particular shape.

I would appreciate any help on this matter.

Thank you.
