Add a View to a Model

A View is the highest-level container, or package, within a model.

There are six types of View, five of which represent conventional ways of categorizing the structures or purposes of a model, and one (Simple View) for developing your own categorization.

To create a View, follow the steps below:

  1. Right-click on your model name in the Project Browser. The context menu displays.
  2. Select the New View menu option. The Create New View dialog displays.
  3. In the Name field, type the name of the View.
  4. In the Set View Icon Style panel, click on the radio button for the type of View to create.
  5. If the model root node had been under version control, an Add to Version Control checkbox would display, defaulted to selected. Ignore this for now.
  6. Click on the OK button.

Add a Package To Your Model

Now that you have created a View in the model, you can add a package and diagram to that View or any other in the model, and then add elements and connectors (relationships).
