Stereotype Visibility

You control the visibility of applied stereotypes using three options in the diagram Properties dialog. Select:

The Show Element Stereotypes checkbox (on the Elements page) to show or hide all element stereotypes in the current diagram
The Show Stereotypes checkbox (for features, on the Features page) to show or hide all attribute and operation stereotypes in the current diagram
The Use Stereotype Icons checkbox (on the Elements page) to display icons, instead of strings, for those stereotypes that have icons defined

 

The example below shows how a Class would appear having multiple stereotypes applied to it.

Use Stereotype Icons disabled: displays all the applied stereotypes in a comma-separated string within «guillemets».

StereotypeIconDisabled

Use Stereotype Icons enabled: displays icons for those stereotypes with icons defined. Stereotypes without icons defined are still displayed in the comma-separated string.
