Text annotations are a mechanism for a modeler to provide additional information for the reader of a BPMN diagram. Text annotations can be linked to an element using an association flow.





Text annotation is similar to the note or text element in the default template of QPR ProcessGuide.



Creating and Modifying Text Annotations
