  2. Open the Profile page of the Toolbox (More tools | Profile).
  3. Drag the Profile item onto the Class diagram. The New Model Package dialog displays.
  4. In the Package Name field, type a name for the Profile.
  5. Select the Automatically add new diagram checkbox.
  6. Click on the OK button. The New Diagram dialog displays.
  7. Provide the required diagram name, and select the diagram group UML Structural and diagram type Class.
  8. Click on the OK button. Enterprise Architect creates a package with the stereotype «profile> and with a child Class diagram.
