Select Specification Type

When you start to use the Specification Manager you can work on all element types in the Package (the default) or identify a specific type of element  to work on, using the third button in the Specification Manager toolbar. You can select any type of element supported by Enterprise Architect or the MDG Technologies that are integrated with the system.

You specify the element type first because when you go on to locate the Package to work in, if you have identified a specific type or element the system automatically filters for Packages that already contain that type of element.

Access     View | Specification Manager | SpecmanElmType

Select the element type

Click on the drop-down arrow at the right-hand end of the button. A short menu of element types displays.

Click on the name of a specific element type to select that type and the Limit Display to Selected Type option.

To revert to listing any type of element in the Package, click on either the:

<Any> option or
Limit Display to Selected Type option again to deselect it

If the specific element type you require is not shown (for example, if it is a custom type created using a Profile, or is from another modeling language such as a SysML requirement) click on the Other option and expand the appropriate sub-menus to locate the element type.
