Change the receiver of a message

Changing the receiver of a message will cause the message to be sent to a different target.

When in diagram edit mode :

With the mouse

  1. Select the message's activation
  2. LEFT-DRAG the message activation until it is close to the lifeline of the new receiver
  3. Release the LEFT mouse button to drop it there

With the keyboard

  1. Select the message's call arrow, its activation or itsreturn arrow
  2. use the LEFT ARROW and RIGHT ARROW keys to make an adjacent target the new receiver of the message

When you use the mouse you needn't worry about getting the drop location exactly right, as Trace Modeler lays out messages and activations automatically.
