Promote attribute to superclass
« on: June 05, 2009, 11:32:07 am »
Hi,

I could not see how to promote an attribute from a subclass to a superclass.  

During my conceptual modelling work this is a common scenario.

The reverse would be nice as well.  To demote from super to sub.

Are these operations supported in EA.  Using EA7.5

Hi Edward,

You can "Drag and Drop" in the Browser; thereby moving the attribute.

You can also drag the attribute fromthe browser onto a class on a diagram and thereby cooy the attribute.

HTH,
