* I have a Class diagram and the Classes show their AttributeCompartments.
* I change the Papyrus Preferences to hide the AttributeCompartments:
Window=>Preferences=>Papyrus=>Diagrams=>PapyrusUMLClassDiagram Diagram=>ClassNode
=> deactivate "Show compartment" for the AtributeCompartment

* If I now drag a new Class from the Palette the new Class does not show an AttributeCompartement. That is fine.

However, I would like the Preferences to also apply for the already existing Classes. How can I achieve this? (Refreshing the Diagram with F5 did not help.)

(The compartments just serve as an example for some kind of Preferences here. My question is more general. An alternantive to hide them would be: Ctrl+A, Ctrl+F5, set Hooks for one Class, click "Propagate selection to elements of same type", click "Ok".)

Hi Stefan,

I think there has to be a way to refresh the graphical view to sync with the model explorer and update based on workspace preferences(but I don't know how)

Regards
Chriss

Hi,

there is a mean to refresh the diagram but in that case it will not do what you want to do. If you change the preferences, the changes apply for next new model elements, but there is indeed no need to force apply the changes done in the preferences on existing elements already created in diagrams.
However, you can either select all elements to be changed and in your case, to show/hyde compartment, you can either use the shortcut 'CTRL+F5', or via the contextual menu by right cliking on the selection and then 'filters>show/hyde compartments'.

As shown in the snapshot seen in the attached file, there is a feature in Papyrus to apply the appearance style of an element to one or a set of elements. You select first the set of elements you want to change and the last one in the selection is considered as being the reference for the changes.

Best... S├ębastien.

You can also do as shown in the attached video to show/hyde the compartments of a classifier.

Thank you for your answers. I like the solution to apply the same style as a work around.
