Connector Role Context Menu

For connectors with Roles, right-clicking a connector within 60 pixels of an end point displays a role-specific context menu that offers three additional menu options:

  • 'Source/Target Role...' - opens the connector 'Properties' dialog with the respective role page selected
  • 'Multiplicity' - opens a submenu through which you can set the multiplicity for the role
  • 'Link to Element Feature' - displays a dialog through which you can attach the end of the connector to a specific attribute or operation
