This short documentation will present the support for custom representations available to Papyrus users


The goal of the sympbol support in Papyrus is to give users access to some custom representations. They can use their own representation, i.e. their own svg files, in their diagrams, so the model can be easily read and understood. SVG file format was used, as this vectorial format scales easily.


Symbol display place in diagrams

The symbols can currently be displayed in 2 places in the diagrams.

Symbol representation in Compartments

Symbol representation as a decorator

Defining symbols in models

Define new symbols in profiles

Symbol associated to Actor UML element

Symbol associated to Type element


  • What is the format supported for the symbols?
  • What are the limitations of the SVG support?
  • What is the syntax for the path to the symbol?
  • (Developers) Can I implement my own policy for Symbol support?
