Find Attribute type in Project Browser
« on: May 02, 2018, 06:56:53 pm »
It would be nice to have a Find Type in Project Browser for class attributes from a diagram or project browser to select the matching type in the browser.

+1, and also for the return type of operations.

My theories are always correct, just apply them to the right reality.

There is actually a (somewhat complicated) way to do that for attributes.
- Make sure the attribute is visible on a diagram
- select the attribute on the diagram
- click again on the attribute to make it editable
- click somewhere on the type part
- right click on the type part and select [Goto Definition...]

This might work for operations as well (I haven't tried)

Or you can do like me and use the EA Navigator ;)
