Free sorting of elements in the Project Browser window , regardless of element type, is now enabled.
For example, in the illustration below the element Object1 has been moved from its original position with the other Object elements, to amongst the Class elements. You move elements using the Up-arrow and Down-arrow icons at the end of the Project Browser toolbar.
The Down-arrow icon moves the element further down the tree, and the Up-arrow icon moves the element further up the tree.

|2.||As prompted, shut down and restart Enterprise Architect to enable this change to take effect.|
Element and feature stereotypes are now shown in the Project Browser window.
Note: In the screen illustration above, the Show Stereotypes option has already been selected. See, for example, Artifact1, Class R or Object2.
You set the stereotype of an element such as Object1 in its Properties dialog
The stereotype then displays in front of the element name in the Project Browser window, as below.
