No problem, I'll search the documentation on Embarcadero's site.

Maybe for small projects, but for any medium to large scale project,
such a tool is useless too. See the following URL as to why I say that.


Our class design is way to large to fit on any paper our printers can
handle, or what can even be displayed on a single screen. So we have to
segment our UML class diagrams to specific areas of our product - only
showing the classes in question. eg: Account Invoicing, Learner
Registration, etc.  Anything larger and it is information overload!

So your idea of selecting what classes to diagram is vital.
