I have read posts back as far as 2008 indicating that you can show or hide individual attributes and operations in a class diagram.  Unfortunately, in examining the property dialogs of both the diagrams and classes, I am not seeing those check boxes or options that would perform a show or hide for the individual attributes or operations.  After several layers of inheritance, implementation classes can have an enormous number of attributes and operations, making the creation of a concise diagram to communicate a concept difficult.  Could you please point me to a help topic or tutorial or white paper on how to do this?  Thank you very much!

This isn't quite the case of duplicate classes being created.  I just imported a large Visual Studio C# solution with multiple projects across two source trees with some inter-dependencies, but not duplicate source.  I am, BTW, impressed that Enterprise Architect did not choke and die.  However, in several places, not a lot, a class or interface was split into two side-by-side entries in the Project Browser with the same name.  However, they do not share attributes or operations or inheritance.  For instance, if an interface extended 5 other interfaces, then one Project Browser entry might show two of the interfaces, and the other 3.  I have even dragged both entries onto a diagram and validated the unique inheritance.  What might have caused this behavior?

I have seen several posts regarding a desire to merge classes and writing an automation script to do it, but it was not recommended as it is quite complicated. This project took 3-4 hours to import.  I don't really want to reimport, as the same thing might happen.  In this latest (13) release, is there an easy way to merge two classes?  Thank you.
