  • Transform ( Ctrl+H )  - Transform the selected element from one domain to another
  • Embedded Elements
  • Features
  • Generate DDL - Generate DDL for a table, procedure or view Class
  • Code Engineering
  • Appearance
  • UML Help - display the Enterprise Architect Help topic for the UML element type
  • Delete ( Ctrl+D )  - delete the element


  • Context menus vary between element types; for example, the Code Engineering options won't display for a Use Case element
