Create Connector in Project Browser

You can create a connector from one element to another directly in the Project Browser.

Connect Elements from the Project Browser

To connect elements from the Project Browser, follow the steps below:

  1. In the Project Browser, either:
  • Right-click on the element to create a connector for, and select the Add | Create Link context menu option, or
  • Select the element, press [Insert] and select the Create Link context menu option.

The Create Link dialog displays.

  1. In the Direction field, click on the drop-down arrow and select the direction of the new connector (Outgoing means this element is the source).
  2. In the Link Type field, click on the drop-down arrow and select the type of connector.
  3. In the Choose target(s) list, click on the name of the target. (If necessary, in the Select Target Type field click on the drop-down arrow and select a feature to list only elements having that feature.)
  4. Click on the OK button to create the connector.


You can also reproduce an existing connector between two elements when you paste those elements from the Project Browser into a diagram as instances. An option enables you to copy the relationship as well, or just the elements.
