Step 2. Activate the Abstraction

In this step, you will learn how to activate an Abstraction.

1.  Activate the Abstraction by selecting it and then selecting the Abstraction menu and choosing the Activate option, or by right-clicking the Abstraction and choosing the Activate option.

     The diagram will be updated to show only the Product, Manufactured Product and Supplied Product entities.

     Note that the Product Entities Abstraction is still shown.

     Note also that the title bar of the modeler has been updated to indicate that the abstraction is active.

2.  Move the Product entity to a different place on the diagram. When the abstraction is activated/deactivated, you will see how the layout is saved.
