Target version:-


A recent Modelio update added the type to the notation of AttributeLinks in object diagrams. Per the UML specification 2.4.1, displaying the type of a feature on an instance is optional, so it should be added as a choice to the Diagram styles preferences. (e.g. in Instance – Slots).

Attribute type can indeed negatively impact the readability of object diagrams when targeting a large audience to explain a model.

Cf. §7.3.22 InstanceSpecification, § Notation, Figure 5.53 – Slots with Values
