Select Specification Type

When you start to use the Specification Manager you can work on elements of all types in the Package (the default) or identify a specific type of element to work on. 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 of element the system automatically filters for Packages that already contain that type of element.

Access Package | View as Requirement List: | Default Specification Type

Tools | Specification Manager: | Default Specification Type

Select the element type

Click on either:

  • 'Other', and expand the technologies and element groups until you can click on a specific element type to filter for, or
  • 'Recent', to list just those element types you have recently focused on, and click on one of them (if you have not previously selected a specific element, or you have cleared the list, this option is not available)

Also check that the 'Limit Display to Selected Type' option is selected.

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
