I generated a sequence diagram of a certain process in our application, the next step was to do some clean up in this diagram.
When selecting a method and then selecting an overload of this method with the Ctrl+click (to select both), I get an error message: "An item with the same key has already been added".

Hey Bart,

Thanks for finding this. This is definitely a bug in our code. Unfortunately, at this stage, we are trying to lock down our product and this bug is not severe enough to fix. I have postponed it so that we can fix it ASAP in the next release.
You are seeing this error message because you are clicking on both the name of a message and the signature at the same time. I suggest the following workarounds
1. If you want to select a message (or multiple messages), select the actual message connector instead of the label. This will allow you to select multiple messages and delete them.
2. Group select multiple messages by drawing a selection rectangle around the messages you need to delete.

Team Architect.
