Adding multiple new elements
You can use Model Expert to add large numbers of new elements, using the definitions in the Reference Model to create a simpler, more error-free user experience.
Right-click in the empty part of any managed diagram and choose Specialize / Model Expert / Add multiple elements / (element type).
Choose an element type from the list of types which are allowed in this diagram.
A blank table opens, with a column for each of the customized attribute fields for this element type.
Multiple elements can be added:
- manually, or
- paste data from the clipboard – this will need to be formatted in the right way for this table, with the columns in the right order
The form will highlight where data is required, but missing, and provide drop-down lists where fields have defined allowed values.
