I am used (till EA13.5) to right-click on the datatype in the project browser or in a diagram, select Features/Attribute and got a dialog with all Attributes (its the same behavior for Operations) for change or for adding a new one.

I know that the dialog mechanisms have change (to the good) with EA14. However, when selecting Features/Attribute on a datatype or interface (not have checked with classes) nothing pops up - just silence.

How to get the Features dialog in EA14 (also had problems to find it in User Guide)

EA now uses a docked window to edit the attributes.
You migh have hidden (or minimized) the window.

In 14.1 there is also an option to get the features popup dialog back instead of the docked window.
See Start | View | Visual Style | Prefer Property Dialogs

(F9 also works for opening the attributes of an element)
