Create fragment

You can create fragments based on selected model items.


You must have selected at least one object. Graphic objects, groupings, and attributes are also included.


  1. In the open model, select the items you want to reuse as fragments.
  2. Right-click in the selection.
  3. Click on Create fragment. The Create fragment dialog opens.
  4. Enter a name for the fragment.
  5. Click on OK.

The fragment is created and placed in the Fragments pane.


In the Fragments pane, fragments are sorted and arranged in alphanumerical order. The name you give a fragment determines where it is displayed in the pane. For example, you can place numbers before a fragment name to specify where it should be inserted.


If the name of a fragment is not entered in a particular language, it is named (Untitled). This may be the case, for example, if ARIS Express is started in a language other than the previous one.
