I probably need a more general drawing editor for this, but I'm trying to use Papyrus.

I'm trying to render an illustration of where the pieces of an application fit in a network at runtime, including what pieces reside in a public subnet, which in a private subnet, the container that both of those lie within, and the relationship of other components outside of that container. I really just want a simple labeled box that I can put other labeled boxes into, and draw arrows between various boxes.

The main probem I have is that some of these component types don't allow nesting components up to the level that I need.

I found that I could create a Device that contains Devices, but no deeper than that.

I noticed that in the Model Explorer, I can create child components, but they won't necessarily render anything in the picture, so that's not useful.

Hello,

I'm not sure about your need but you can maybe try with a package diagram. You can add as much package levels as you need and use dependencies to draw arrows. You can also use CSS sheet to customize styles of your elements.

HTH.

Yoann.
