Quick Start - Add Tagged Value To Elements

You can add a Tagged Value to one or more elements within a diagram, using a context menu option. You can also use the Current Element toolbar, on which the last button is a shortcut to the 'Add Tagged Value' option.

To delete the Tagged Value you must open the 'Properties' dialog for each element, go to the 'Tagged Values' tab and manually delete the item. There is currently no shortcut to delete tags from multiple elements simultaneously.

To add notes to the Tagged Value, in the element 'Properties' dialog go to the 'Tagged Values' tab, click on the Tagged Value name, and click on the Edit Notes button in the tab toolbar. The 'Notes' dialog displays.

Any Notes text you enter also displays in the 'Info' section at the bottom of the Tagged Values window.
