MagicDraw 19.0 LTR SP4 Documentation


If you want to make changes in the profile, you can modify it by either opening the profile as a regular project or modify it in the read-write mode.


Opening Profile as Project

This is the safest way to modify your profiles. It helps to see all infrastructure (including diagrams, tests, examples, etc.) that is not shared.


To open a Profile as a project


  • In the Browser, from the used Profile shortcut menu, choose Project Usages > Open.
  • On the File menu, click Open Project to open the Profile as a simple Project.


Modifying Profile in Read-Write Mode


Using the profile in the read-write mode is the fastest way to add changes when you are not in teamwork and do not care if there are possible editing conflicts. It helps to perform basic refactoring of your shared projects by moving the elements directly from one project to the other. You may choose read-write usage mode when trying to use a profile as a project.


To use Profile in the read-write mode


  1. Do one of the following:
    • If the profile is not in use yet, on the File menu, click Use Project. Select Use Local Project or Use Server Project, depending on where the project is located. Select a profile project and click Next.
    • If the profile is already in use, choose Project Usages > Options from its shortcut menu.
  2. In the Accessibility area, click Read-write. By setting this option you will be able to change the profile directly in your project. Click Finish after you are done.
