Creating a role
When you create an Association, Modeler creates a Role at each end of the Association.
You can access the properties of the Roles that are created for an Association through the Start Role and End Role tabs of an Association's property pages.
To open the property pages for a role:
1. Open the Property Pages of the Association that owns the Role.
2. Click the Start Role tab or End Role tab as appropriate.
3. Click the Properties button that is next to the In Role box.
