A package is a container of model elements. It is represented in the Project Browser by the 'folder' icon familiar to Windows users.

This topic explores the tasks you can perform with packages, including:

Open a package
Add a package
Rename a package
Copy a package
Drag a package onto a diagram
Show or hide a package
Delete a package
List the elements in a package, with their properties, on the Package Browser
