I'm not sure I understand what you want exactly.
If you go in the "property types" tab of the "Definitions" window, you 
have several predefined property constructors that can help you. One is 
rdf:li, the other one is "_?? (Membership property auto-numbering)". 
When you select this one and create new statements for a given resource, 
IsaViz will look for other _1, _2... properties already present and 
assign the new property the lowest _X it finds (X being an integer).

Is that what you want?

yes. Go the the "Namespaces" tab in the same window. Here you can define 
NS prefix bindings for the namespaces used in your model. Two are 
present by default, for RDF and RDFS. If you use elements from other 
namespaces, like dublin core, those namespaces will be listed here too, 
but no prefix will be bound to them. You can bind a prefix by entering a 
string in the prefix column (e.g. "dc"). Then, to display the prefix 
instead of the full URI for properties in the Graph window, just tick 
the checkbox in the right column (display prefix).


P.S: I'm working on your SVG offset problem
