Assign a Tagged Value to an Item

You can assign Tagged Values to a range of model objects, including elements, object instances, connectors, attributes and operations, using the Tagged Values window. You would probably have the window open already as a docked window, and any object you select becomes the focus of the window; you can then review and add or delete Tagged Values for that object.
