Change Diagram Type

If necessary, you can change one type of diagram to another type.

This is useful if you have either made a mistake in selecting the diagram type to begin with, or if the purpose and nature of a diagram changes during analysis.


Some diagram types do not transfer to others; for example you cannot change a Class diagram into a Sequence diagram.

To change a diagram type, follow the steps below:

  1. Open the diagram to change.
  2. Select the Diagram | Change Type menu option. The Change Diagram Type dialog displays.
  3. Select the required diagram type.
  4. Click on the OK button to save changes.
