Edit an Item

When you have created a Category, Topic, Document or Comment, you edit the text within it using the Team Document editor. This is based on the Document editor, which is used to edit report documents and Linked Documents throughout Enterprise Architect.

You can also change the name of the item by selecting it, pressing F2 and typing the new name.
