Using the Add-Ins Panel

The 'Add-Ins' panel provides access to any Add-Ins that are integrated with the Enterprise Architect installer for the edition you are using, and any Add-Ins that you have imported into Enterprise Architect, whether commercially bought or developed in-house. As part of the Code Ribbon, the Add-In options here are particularly associated with code generation and management.

The options and facilities presented therefore depend on what Add-Ins are enabled on your system. Two integrated Add-Ins that are associated with code development are the MDG Link for Eclipse and MDG Link for Visual Studio, as illustrated here.
