Edit a Stereotype Element

If you want to add to or correct the properties of a Stereotype or Metaclass element in a Profile, you can edit it using the standard facilities such as the element Properties dialogs and Tagged Values window. However, you can also update the Stereotype element through the Profile Helper Stereotype Properties dialog and, through the Stereotype, also update the Metaclass elements that the Stereotype extends.

Any changes you have made to the elements by other means, such as through the element Properties dialog, are reflected in the contents of the Profile Helper.

Access     Right-click on Stereotype element | Edit with Profile Helper
