To create new elements using the Quick Linker, follow the steps below:

1.Select a start element on the current diagram.
2.Drag the Quick Linker icon onto an empty area of the diagram.
3.Use the Quick Linker context menu to select the type of element and connector to create.


Tip: Press and hold [Shift] while selecting the type of connector to select an existing classifier as the target.

Tip: For rapid modeling, you can suppress the Properties dialog when creating new elements. See the option Tools | Options | Objects | Edit Object on New
