What is the vernacular for a component part that one generates and saves, so I can search for it in the TWC16.PDF document?  

I am building a process vessel. In it, are  spiral rings of tubing.  the tubing is attached to Swagelok fittings  that are fixed to  welded in place pipe nipples.

I have drawn the swagelok fitting.  Now, I want to save it as a retrievable component part.  But, I don't know what word to plug into the PDF help document search box.

My swagelok component is not unitary but rather composed of a series of unconnected poly lines  and individual lines. I have use "join polyline"  to connect some of the lines  into unitary compositions but the lines that connect them   I can not include a polyline structure
Here is what I mean:

How about Grouping all components of the Swagelok?

For me, 3 processes come to mind:
Symbol (already mentioned)
Block
External Reference
