Element Icons

When you add an element to a diagram, or select an existing element, a number of small icons display off the right hand side of the element, underneath the Quicklinker arrow.

ElementIcons      or       elementicons2

 

These icons display small versions of the diagram toolbars or perform specific actions, to enable you to quickly edit the element you have highlighted.
