2.Click on the element, and on the attribute to edit within the element. The item line is highlighted in a lighter shade (the default is white), to indicate that it has been selected.
3.Right-click on the item. The context menu displays.
4.Select the Edit Selected menu option (or press [F2]) to enable you to edit the attribute directly from the diagram. The name of the attribute is highlighted.
5.Right-click on the attribute name to display the context menu.
6.From the context menu, you can:
·Change the attribute classifier to static or fixed - select the static or fixed menu options as appropriate; the diagram is updated to reflect the changes.
·Display the Class properties - click on the  Goto Definition menu option; Enterprise Architect locates the Class in the Project Browser window and opens its Properties dialog.
