Notes enable you to provide explanations and further detail for one or more connectors on a diagram, with a visible Note element.

Right-click on one of the connectors to attach a note to.

The context menu displays.

The 'Link Relations' dialog displays.


Select the appropriate radio button in the Link Type panel.


Check all the connectors that participate in the set.


Click on the OK button to complete the note or constraint creation.

  • The constraint note is drawn slightly differently to a regular note, and has { and } automatically added to visually indicate the constraint form
  • As an alternative to the procedure, you can drag the Quick Linker arrow on an existing Note or Constraint, and drag it to the required connector; a Notelink is automatically created to attach the Note or Constraint to the connector
