MagicDraw 19.0 LTR Documentation


During the development process and in order to understand the system fast, navigating between elements from different levels of abstraction is necessary. Navigating from one element to another is easy using the modeling tool's GUI capabilities of the traceability feature, if there is at least one traceability relation between them.


To navigate between different levels of abstraction, use the following features:

Element’s Specification window

Open the element’s Specification window and select the Traceability property group, and then right-click on the property. Choose Open Specification and select an element (if there is more than one related element). The Specification window of this element will be opened. 

Element’s Properties panel

Open the element’s Properties panel and select the Traceability tab, and then right-click on the property. Choose Open Specification and select an element (if there is more than one related element). The Specification window of this element will be opened.

Go To submenu on element’s shortcut menu

From the element’s shortcut menu, select Go To > Traceability > Specification/ Realization/Other . Choose a property and then select an element. The element will be selected in the Containment tree.
