Selectable, Dockable and Printable Options
The 'Selectable', 'Dockable' and 'Printable' options on the element context menu control several aspects of an element's behavior on a diagram.
The 'Behavior' option also provides access to the element Info View facility.
On a diagram, right-click on an element and select the 'Behavior' option.
Select or deselect this option to toggle whether the element is selectable or not:
This option has no effect on double-click operations on the element, such as displaying child diagrams or 'Properties' dialogs.
An element on a locked diagram is also unselectable - if you click on it, the element outline displays in red.
In a diagram, you can filter the display to show selectable or non-selectable elements only.
Select this option to align and join two elements either vertically or horizontally, on the current diagram only.
Both elements must have the 'Dockable' option selected, and must have the joining edges parallel.
As the distance between the elements narrows, the moving element snaps to the edge of the other element.
For Activity Partitions, the option is selected by default.
Deselecting the 'Dockable' option does not separate the elements; if necessary, you can simply move the elements apart again.
Defaults to selected, so that the element is depicted in any diagrams in reports generated on its parent Package.
If you click on the option to deselect it, the element and its connectors will not be visible in any diagrams in reports. You can, however, deselect a report option for an instance of a report to force the display of non-printable elements.
Deselecting this option also hides the element and its connectors in the 'Print Diagrams', 'Print to PDF' and 'Save Diagram as Image' operations.
