PyCharm 2019.3 Help

Adding Node Elements to Diagram

You can add the existing node elements to the background of the UML Class diagram, using the context menu action, or drag-and-drop technique.

If there are relationships between the node elements in model, and the added element, these relationships will be displayed in diagram.

Adding node elements

  1. In the Enter class name to add dialog box, start typing the desired class name. PyCharm automatically displays suggestion list with matching names.

    Note that you can include classes outside the scope of your project, by selecting the Include non-project classes checkbox.

  2. Select the desired class from the suggestion list, and press Enter.

Adding notes

  1. Right-click a node element, which you would like to comment.

  2. On the context menu, choose New | Note.

  3. In the text box, type the desired text. Note that Enter starts a new line in the text box. To complete a note, click OK, or press Ctrl+Enter.
