Insert Elements and Connectors

When you click on the 'Diagram | New Element or Connector' context menu option, a list of elements and connectors displays. This is the 'Toolbox Shortcut menu'.

Structure

The 'Toolbox Shortcut' menu is divided into sections:

  • Other - expands to offer options to select elements and connectors from diagram types other than either the current diagram type or pinned Toolbox pages
  • The expanded list of elements and connectors for the current diagram type
  • Collapsed lists of elements and connectors for pages that have been pinned in the Toolbox; if an MDG Technology:
         -  is active
         -  automatically pins Toolbox pages, and
         -  has pages that redefine UML or Extended pages
    then the MDG Technology pages override the UML or Extended pages, which are not shown
  • At the end:
         -  'Common' expands to display a list of the common elements and connectors, and
         -  'Artifact' expands to display a list of the different types of Artifact element you can create

Notes

  • The list of elements and connectors also displays on the diagram if you press Ctrl or Shift as you right-click the mouse, or if you press Spacebar or the Insert key while the cursor is on the diagram
