Context References Tab

As you create a structured specification on the Scenarios page of the element Properties dialog, you can use the Context References tab to create and display a list of all elements that are either:

·Connected to the current element by any connector, on the current diagram or another, or
·Defined as a cross reference (or custom reference) on the current element

 

Access     On a diagram or in the Project Browser, right-click on element and select:
 
Properties > Scenarios > Structured Specification | Context References | Right-click on space | Add Context Reference or
Properties Page | Scenarios > Structured Specification | Context References | Right-click on space | Add Context Reference

 

The Select Element dialog displays, through which you locate and select the required cross reference element or elements.

For each cross reference you can also use context menu options to delete the entry in the list, or to open the Comment field so that you can add or edit comment text.

For each element in the Context References list, wherever the name of that element appears in the structured specification, the name is highlighted and underlined; press Ctrl and click twice on the highlighted name to view the element Properties dialog.
