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, select an element, then use any of the methods outlined here to display the 'Select Element' dialog. Use the 'Select Element' dialog to 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 the Ctrl key and click twice on the highlighted name to view the element 'Properties' dialog.
