Hi all,

I would like to have two classes with the same name such as:

  • Test <<stereotype>> 
  • Test

and I would like to make relation between those two classes. 
Is it possible to make alias for classes in class diagram so I can make distinction between the classes thus those will be represented as two different elements.

Thank you very much

You can use alias with "as" keyword

@startuml
class "Test" as TestStereo <<stereotype>>
class Test
Test --> TestStereo
