There is a minor bug in MDSysML19SP3 and CSM19SP3. If you have an ItemFlow on a Connector and for some reason you have to redisplay it, sometimes both the name and the type vanish (but the flow arrow stays).

For the name there is a display option Show Name of Information Flow.

But for the type, use this tricky WORKAROUND HACK . Apply a dummy ItemFlow of the same Type in the same direction (then delete it).

There are display options for Show Conveyed Information A and Show Conveyed Information B but toggling them does not help
