A key feature of this messaging system is that text messages can be attached to model elements. Element-based messages are sent with every Request and Assign operation. The message includes a view of the requested elements. The recipient can click “Apply View” to navigate to the view where the requested/transferred elements are, and apply the view settings. (Then return to the original view using “Restore View.”) The recipient can also find and select the model elements with “Show Element(s)”. This can be extremely useful if you are working on a project view where the transferred or requested elements are not visible.
