How to change text symbol to an acon in CDM Entity in PowerDesigner 16.6?

Dear Collegues!

How can be the Identifier attribute (<pi>) displayed as an icon (a key icon for instance) within the Entity symbol (CDM)?

    Sorry, you can't do that, as the attribute line can only contain text. You can create an extended attribute to display, so you can show alternate text. For example, create a computed extended attribute called "IsPK" with %Get% = obj.PrimaryIdentifier in the Get Method, and add it to the list of attribute properties shown in the symbol, via Display Preferences.

    Alternatively, you could create a computed extended collection of PK attributes, which can then be displayed in a separate section of the entity symbol.
