A 'Fork/Join (Parallel)' construct can be added to an 'Activity Diagram' via drag-and-drop. Below is an outline of the steps necessary for adding a 'Fork/Join (Parallel)' construct to an 'Activity Diagram':

  1. Within an 'Activity Diagram', click the 'Fork/Join (Parallel)' icon in the 'New' tab of the left sidebar and continue to hold down the left mouse button.

    Click New Fork/Join (Parallel)

  2. Drag the 'Fork/Join (Parallel)' icon over to the arrow line between the Start and End nodes.

    Drag New Fork/Join (Parallel)

  3. When the line between the Start and End nodes highlights green, release the left mouse button to drop the new 'Fork/Join (Parallel)' and add it to the diagram.

    Drop New Fork/Join (Parallel)

  4. Notice the 'Fork/Join (Parallel)' stays selected once it has been dropped. You can now begin to add other diagram constructs to the new control flow paths.

    Fork/Join (Parallel) Stays Selected

  5. Click the 'Save' button located on the toolbar to persist your changes to your project's database.
