I am utilising the trial period so still very green, so apologies in advance for the rookie question. Also I am not getting answers to my support tickets so am trying out the forum to see if this is the best route to getting resolutions to issues in a reasonable timeframe that allows me to perform my evaluation of your product within the trial period.

This code works :

this.diagram.addNode( {
        shape: { type: 'Text'content: 'Basic Shapes' },
        style: { fontSize: 16fill: 'None'fontFamily: 'sans-serif'bold: truestrokeWidth: 0 },
        offsetX: 300,
        offsetY: 300

This code doesn't work, and doesn't give any errors :

this.diagram.addNode( {
        shape: { type: 'Bpmn'shape: 'Event',
        event: {
            event: 'Start',
            trigger: 'None'
        offsetX: 200,
        offsetY: 200

What am I doing wrong?

Hi Charlie, 

We should inject BpmnDiagrams module to render a BPMN Node in the diagram. Please refer to a code example below. 

Code example:  
import { 
} from '@syncfusion/ej2-diagrams'; 

Please refer to the help documentation below that shows the list of diagram features module you can inject it in your application. 
Here is an sample with your code
