With the new Metamodel browsing functionality (enabled by a license), it is possible to track the usage information for element types and attribute types. This functionality enables controlling the visibility usage information for both element types and attribute types and enables their use in other models. By default this information is not shown but it can be enabled from Modeling Options. The number of elements having values for the element or attribute type is shown in its own column.

Metamodel browsing also enables copying the element type with its custom attribute definitions to the clipboard and then pasting to another model.

 

For each attribute type, more detailed usage information for the particular attribute type is also provided.
