Add a Package To a Model

A Package is a container of model elements, and is displayed in the Project Browser as the 'folder' icon familiar to Windows users. Package contents are arranged alphabetically.

In the Project Browser click on a package and, in the Project Browser toolbar, click on the New Package icon NewPackage.

Enterprise Architect displays a prompt for the package name.

New Model Package Dialog


This prompt also contains the Automatically add new diagram option for automatically creating a diagram for the package, which defaults to selected. This is very a useful feature, but for the purposes of this introduction deselect the checkbox against the option.

Type in a name and click on the OK button. Enterprise Architect adds the new package subordinate to the package you selected.
