Pasting Composite Elements

Return to Introduction  Previous page  Next page

Several additional options are available to you when pasting Composite elements from one diagram to another.

When you drag a Composite element from the Project Browser window onto the current diagram with [Ctrl] held down, Enterprise Architect prompts you to select the type of paste action to carry out with the Composite element.


Two advanced options are available for pasting Composite elements; these require the include Embedded Elements checkbox to be selected:

1.The All Embedded Elements option, which pastes all of the Composite element's embedded elements.
2.The Based on instance option, which pastes only the elements contained in a specific instance of the Composite element. Click on the drop-down arrow and select the appropriate instance.
