Create New Elements
The elements and connectors listed on the two menus depend on the type of the element you initially selected; for example, if you click on the Quick Linker arrow for a Class, the options are not the same as if you clicked on the arrow for an Actor. However, in either case the menus show the most appropriate, commonly used target elements and connectors for that initial element; you can create other target elements and connectors by selecting them from the appropriate Toolbox page.
Certain types of element - such as Action and Artifact - are available in a range of subtypes. You can select which subtype to create by holding down the as you select the main element type and connector. For an:
- Action element, the 'New Action' dialog displays from which you select the Action subtype, such as CallOperation or SendObject
- Artifact element, a submenu displays from which you select the Artifact subtype, such as Report Specification or Checklist
