The Summary Window

The Summary window shows a brief, read-only summary of the general properties of the currently selected:

  • Element (including Packages)
  • Attribute
  • Operation
  • Test
  • Maintenance item
  • Resource

It does not display details for Views, Model Packages, diagrams, instances or connectors.

The Summary window immediately displays general information on the item in context, so you can quickly scan a number of items to locate and check those of interest to you. You can highlight a section of text or the complete content, and copy it to be pasted into an external document.

The window is mirrored by the 'Summary' tab of the Inspector window; the 'Summary' tab and Summary window always remain in synchrony.
