You can add attributes and operations to an element using the in-place editing options. To add attributes and operations to a Class diagram element, follow the steps below:

1.Open the diagram containing the element to which you are adding an attribute or operation.
2.Click on the element, and within the element on the item after which to insert the operation or attribute. The item line is highlighted in a lighter shade (the default is white), to indicate that it has been selected.
3.Press [Insert]. Alternatively, right-click on the selected element item to display the context menu and select the Insert New After Selected menu option.
Enterprise Architect inserts a new data line in the diagram, underneath the selected item.
4.Type in the relevant information for the attribute or operation. Press [Enter] to accept the change or [Esc] to cancel the change. The diagram is updated to reflect the changes.
