|Sequence diagrams: guided selection of operations? [message #1811153]

I see on several (old) videos (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4qHctzrUl3I, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q9DUHOr_ANA) that it seems (or used to be?) possible to let Papyrus help me choose an operation among the ones that make sense, when I create a message from an instance to another instance in a sequence diagram.
But when I create a Sequence diagram using Papyrus 2019-06 (4.12) and add a message between two instances, nothing happens, contrary to the video showing a dialog opening for selecting an operation; and when I afterwards use the Signature property in the newly created message, it lets me choose any operation, even among those that are not applicable to the instance receiving the message.
Am I doing something wrong? Or is it a feature that is known to not work in the current version?
Related question: if, before I create the message, I add an Action Execution Specification, and inside it, describe the action as being a certain operation call, can I make this automatically appear on the diagram? Currently I have to then manually add a message and specify again that the message is that same operation call, and nothing prevents me from making it a different operation call.
