Editing

You can add, modify, delete and inactivate descriptions on this page of the editor.
You can add descriptions using the
button in the top right corner of the page.
The
button deletes the description if it was not already present in versioned content, otherwise, the description is inactivated.
The Description Inactivation Wizard allows you to select the Language Reference Set members that should be inactivated with the description, the inactivation reason as well as a target component, if a member should also be created in the appropriate Historical Association Reference Set.

Module and case significance can be edited by selecting a description in the table and clicking on the cell you would like to change. Doing so reveals a drop-down where you can select the new value from a pre-defined set of concepts.
You can change the module of a description by selecting its module ID and clicking on the presented
