Notes

Elements such as Actors, Classes and Activities can define a large amount of information that can be conveniently represented by or expanded in a child diagram; the Add sub-menu for these elements provides all of the options listed above
Elements such as Timing, Exit and History have much more specific functions that do not require expansion; the Add sub-menu for these elements only provides the Create Link option
