How to reuse data object in two or more business process diagrams?

I would like to add description for the data objects in my process diagram, but when I have to use the same data object more than once, modeler creates new object each time. I can copy the description from the first data object to new one, but later-on if I have to make changes to it, then I have to synchronize them manually (to copy - paste). Is it possible somehow to use the same data object in multiple diagrams?

Dear Alexander,

Reading your description, we guess that you need to implement extended attributes. With Bizagi Modeler you can extend your documentation to include any type of information that you find relevant for your processes, through extended attributes.

Extended attributes are used to customize your documentation by adding to the basic attributes which is the default option.

I am using extended attributes to create additional placeholders (e.g. fields, sections). How I can use them to create reusable data object? I need to create data object (e.g. "Invoices") in some diagram, to write long description for it, then in another diagram instead to add new data object with the same name, to add Data Object reference to the first data object. And when I open the description of the reference in the second diagram I want to see the same description inside, which is entered for the object first diagram. In other systems I am using Data Object References for the same.
