Remove Elements From a Diagram

Removing an element from a diagram does not delete the element from the model and therefore does not alter the structure of the underlying model. When you remove an element from a diagram, you are essentially 'hiding' the element in that particular view of the model.

Remove elements from a diagram

Step

Action

1

Open the diagram that is to be modified.

Either:

  • Double-click on the diagram name in the Project Browser, or
  • Make an already open diagram the 'active' diagram, by clicking on its tab in the Diagram View

2

Either:

  • Press Ctrl+A to select all of the elements in the diagram, or
  • Click on an element in the diagram to select it (and use Ctrl+click to add further elements to your selection, or to remove elements from the selection)

The selected elements are highlighted in the diagram.

3

Either:

  • Press the Delete key, or
  • Press Ctrl+D, or
  • Right-click a selected element and select the 'Delete <element name>' or 'Delete Selected Elements' option

The selected elements are removed from the diagram.

Notes

You can 'undo' the removal of a diagram element, by pressing Ctrl+Z, or by clicking the Undo button in the Default Tools toolbar
