Move Objects Between Packages

When creating the various diagrams, elements and Packages that make up your model, at some point you might create one of these objects under the wrong parent Package. It is quite simple to relocate a model object from one Package to another, either to a higher level Package, a lower level Package or a different Package at the same level.

Move objects between Packages




In the Browser window, click on and drag the model item to be relocated from its existing position, and drop it onto the new parent Package.

The dragged item and all of its child items are relocated to the target Package.


  • Moving elements in the Browser window does not affect the use of elements in diagrams
  • Moving an element or Package has no effect on any relationships that the element, Package, or elements within the Package have
  • Moving a diagram generally does not affect the location of elements in Packages
