Move Elements Between Packages

When creating the various diagrams, elements and packages that make up your model, at some point you might create an item under the wrong parent package.

In Enterprise Architect it is quite simple to relocate a model item from one parent package to another. Items can be relocated to a higher level package, a lower level package or a different package at the same level.

Moving an element or package has no effect on any relationships that the element, package, or elements within the package have
Moving a diagram generally does not affect the location of elements in packages
However, elements of certain types, such as Initial Node,  Decision and Final Node, are used only within one diagram and have no meaning outside that diagram; if you move a diagram containing these elements, they are moved to the new parent package with the diagram
