The Stereotype properties can be applied only if the stereotype properties style is created in the Project Options dialog.
The Stereotype properties are derived from their base class. The Stereotype base class is defined in the label of the right pane of the Project Options dialog.
The same element can have several stereotypes assigned. In this case, the style of the first stereotype will be applied to the element symbol. If the stereotype is removed from the element, the next (first) stereotype properties are applied. If the last stereotype is removed from the element, the base class (shape or path) properties are applied to the element symbol.
Stereotypes may be extended by diagram.
All stereotypes that have defined symbol properties are included in the Stereotypes property group. The default style is created for these stereotypes.
