Organize elements, properties and relations

Organize elements, properties and relations

Model objects presented in the workspace can be rearranged to change the order in which the model objects are shown relative to other model objects. Further, type elements and type relations can be organized in sections. For example, to make the model objects more recognizable for users.

Organize type elements in the type list *

On the type elements view, all type elements are displayed in a list. Initially, all the type elements are presented in alphabetical order. The list items representing the type elements can be organized in distinctive sections. This makes it easier to find and recognize the various type elements.

  2. In the menu, click on Organize menu. As a result, the dialog Organize menu is opened.
  3. In the dialog Organize menu, for a type element, click on the drag indicator. While holding down the left mouse button, drag the type element after or before another type element. As a result, the type element is repositioned in the type elements view.

Organize type properties on the detail view *

On the detail view, all type properties are displayed in a table presented at the top of the detail view. Initially, all the type properties are presented one after the other based on the order in which they are added to the model. Sections allow you to organize the type properties by rearranging the order relative to other type properties.

  2. In the model, click on the type element.
  3. In the toolbox, click on Edit sections.

Organize type relations on the detail view *

On the detail view, all type relations are displayed in separate tables. Initially, all the tables are presented one after the other based on the order in which they are added to the model. The tables representing the type relations can be organized into distinctive sections. This makes it easier to find and recognize the various tables.
