Apply Stereotypes

During the course of your modeling, you might decide that an existing object requires a stereotype. Enterprise Architect allows new stereotypes to be applied to objects by themselves or in combination with other stereotypes. You do this through the 'Stereotype' field on:

  • The object's 'Properties' dialog or
  • Properties window


Open the Properties window or the 'Properties' dialog using one of the methods outlined here, then click on the Browse. button at the right of the 'Stereotype' field, and use the 'Stereotypes for <object name>' dialog (the Stereotype Selector).
