Each of these applications is based on the same library of Motif shapes.

Then activate the Individual motif Tool 7 and click where you need the motif to be placed.

The motif has an anchor/rotation point, Left-clicking once then moving the mouse will rotate the motif, at the same time holding down the SHIFT key will resize the motif and a second click will place the motif and you can move to the next location for a new placement.
