            for (var idx = 0; idx < selected.length; idx++) {
              selected[idx].content(content);

Example - changing the shapes rotation step

<div id="diagram"></div>
<script>
  $("#diagram").kendoDiagram({
    layout: "tree",
    shapeDefaults: {
      editable: {
        tools: [{
          name: "delete"
        }, {
          name: "rotateClockwise",
          step: 45
        }, {
          name: "rotateAnticlockwise",
          step: 45
        }]
      }
    },
    shapes: [{
      id: "1",
