Screencast: MagicDraw SysML/Cameo analysis: Possible "gotchas" when extending the SysML Block stereotype

Keywords

Audience: Users of MagicDraw SysML or Cameo Systems Modeler who are experimenting with creating custom stereotypes that extend Block.

This screencast video has been created to demonstrate some issues that can arise if you "naively" create a custom stereotype that extends Block without: (1) closing then re-opening your project; (2) creating an appropriate MD Customization. It is not about any actual "bug" in MagicDraw/Cameo (as long as you follow the recommended procedure). If you watch it, please do watch it to the end to find how to handle such stereotypes properly.
