Signals - "Details" tab not displayed
« on: November 20, 2018, 03:37:09 am »
Hi,

for any Signal element that I add to a diagram I am not able to see the "Details" tab in the properties like it is shown for Classes:


Is it possible to activate the Details tab for Signals? I need access to Attributes and Operations...

Thanks in advance!

Design > Element > Features > Attributes
Design > Element > Features > Operations

Alternately, F9 and F10.

The details page exists to provide other options that aren't available for other types. It's only an artifact of history that it provides access to the Attributes and Operations. It's never been the primary way to access those windows.

Well, sounds like the UX should be evaluated and the UI redesigned.

I like to have a consistent one and more than one way to achieve something via GUI.  Because I think counterclockwise where others think clockwise. And because "this is the obvious way" is a very subjective view based on what I experienced in the past.
