    Class diagrams and sequence diagrams are very different in fundamentals. Class diagrams are static (no time is involved) and sequence diagrams represent how instances of class work in time. That is a longwinded way of saying that you can not convert a class diagram into a sequence diagram.

    However, instances of classes are used in sequence diagrams. So if you have created some classes, then you can drag a class from the explorer and drop it into a sequence diagram. It will become an instance of that class. You may rename it, so a class named Employee may become an instance Administrator:Employee and another instance Worker:Employee and Supervisor:Employee. SO one class became 3 class instanceses in a sequence diagram.
