Insert Diagram Properties Note

On a diagram, it is possible to display a customized text box called the Diagram Properties Note, which automatically shows the diagram properties:

  • Name
  • Author
  • Version
  • Creation date and
  • Modification date

You can move this Note around the diagram and change its appearance, and you can create several instances of it to, for example, put the property information on each page of the diagram. You cannot change the content.

Access Drag the Diagram Notes icon from the Common page of the Toolbox onto the diagram, or

Diagram | Add Diagram Property Note, or

Click on the Diagram Properties Note icon in the UML Elements toolbar and click on the diagram


  • The Diagram Properties Note is not the same as the Diagram Details Note, which displays if the 'Show Diagram Details' checkbox is selected on the 'Diagram Properties' dialog; this always displays in the top left corner of the diagram - you cannot move it, change its appearance or have more than one instance of it on the diagram
