Configure diagram settings
Default options for the UML Class diagram help define the elements to be shown in diagram, visibility level of the node elements and members, layout, and more. These settings apply to any newly created UML Class diagram. Once a UML Class diagram is open, you can change its display settings as required, using the diagram toolbar and context menu.
Refer to the section Diagrams for the detailed description of controls.

Select the checkboxes that define the Class diagram appearance and behavior: default layout, behavior after layout, and the possibility to view colored links.
