To select output/input pin automatically when drawing an Object Flow
- When drawing an Object Flow, our modeling tool automatically selects Output or Input Pins, creates a new Pin, under certain conditions, or you can choose a Pin from the list of options. For example, a list of available options to select input Pins opens when drawing Object Flow to the Action that has more than one hidden Input Pin.
To split Object Flows
- From an Object Flow shortcut menu on a diagram pane, select Refactor and then select Split Object Flow.
- The Split Object Flow command splits Object Flow into two connectors that are marked with an A letter.
- Double-click the connector to select the other connector on the diagram pane.
- Splitting of object flows helps to navigate in a complicated diagram.
- For more information about Refactoring, read Refactoring.
To join Object Flow connectors
- From a connector's shortcut menu, select Refactor and then select Join Connectors.
To set type of Pins by using a drag-and-drop operation
In the Model Browser, select a type of pins.

- To display a type of a pin on a diagram, from the pin shape shortcut menu, select Symbol Properties and then select the Show Type check box.
To create Central Buffer Nodes on Object Flows by using a drag-and-drop operation
- In the Model Browser, select a type of a Central Buffer Node, and drag it to an Object Flow path on a diagram pane.
- Wait for a few seconds and drop it.
- Select the Split the flow command.
- The Split Object Flow message opens.
