Navigate: Exploring Your Model

 

uml_patterns

Navigating is the process of systematically exploring the structure of your model using the hierarchical and list based views, such as the Project Browser. It is particularly useful when you are familiar with the structure of a model and its packaged contents. Whereas Searching provides a flat and random set of results, the Project and Package Browsers provide a highly structured viewpoint, reflecting the exact structure of your model.
