Use Case Copying or Cloning

Using Together, I have several UML 2.0 use cases that I created within a use case diagram for the first release. These use cases were elaborated on, hyperlinked to a sequence diagram, thus associating to a particular interaction diagram.

Now we are on the second incremental release, and during analysis, realized that there are several use case from the previous release that will be re-used for this next release.

How do I re-use these use cases, depicting these use cases in the next release use case diagram? Do I copy? Do I clone?

Do I paste ? Or is Past Element another option?

RE: Use Case Copying or Cloning

Hi Milagros,

   It really depends whether you want the copy of elements to be linked to the original elements of which it is a copy or if you want these to be completely independent elements.

'Paste Element' will paste on a completely independent copy of any copied elements. Whereas 'Paste' will paste an element into the new diagram while still maintaining a link to the original diagram/element.
