Cannot see Files on Diagram ...
Either have a Diagram Sub Section ...

MORE GENERALLY ... need a way to see show which elements have what entries underneath ... maybe an indicators bar on each element to show the presence of

A classic problem is all the codes and supporting descriptors that are fundamentally part of the design, but not easy to capture in EA / UML, which concentrates on structure rather than values ...

E.g. I have lists of audit value descriptors and corresponding code constants ... or security permission descriptors

EA seems to treat what is dropped as text w/o analyzing the nature of what is dropped ...

Hyperlink onto Diagram is saved as File .... not as Web Site ...
... then loses address when changed to Web Site ...

Hyperlink on Element ... thinks its on a diagram ...

Text onto diagram creates the selected classifier ...
