Status Bar

The Status bar displays at the bottom of the Enterprise Architect workspace. It provides feedback on current operations and other status information, and enables you to manipulate the scale of a diagram.

Access:     View | Toolbars | Status Bar

Use to:

  • Identify the type and name of the currently selected element in a diagram (or the status of a Model Search)
  • Identify the name of the currently-selected feature, if one is selected
  • View the current coordinates of the top left corner of the selected element, and its width and height
  • Adjust the scale of the current diagram by up to 50%,  through use of a zoom slider
  • Check the status of ( Caps Lock ), ( Num Lock ), ( Scrl Lock ) and the WAN Optimizer (bold indicates 'in use', pale indicates 'off')
  • Check, by the presence of a triangle in the bottom right corner, that the screen is not maximized; you can drag the screen corner to increase the size of the window
