  1. Don't put everything in one line in UMLJ file

    While the idea to use a text-based file format to allow easy management via any CVS at hand is a really great idea, it is killed by UMLJ format.
    Issue is that diff utils compare per line, and (at least in Mercurial) start to treat UMLJ file as a binary file due to everything is put in one (and very big) line.
    Please, use any js formatter to fix that!

    This feature was implemented in Beta-12. You can export diagrams to PDF file by selecting [File > Print to PDF.. menu]. And then you can print diagrams via PDF Readers (e.g. Adobe Acrobat Reader).

  3. Expend Documentation Area

    documentation area cant change size.
    I need more space.

  4. Improve Properties Editing

    When I edit the properties for attributes, I naturally click "tab" to move to the next property for edit.

    "Tab" is not working properly in such context.

  5. Porting to Linux

    It's a very good program but I'm sure that StarUML as a Open Source platform will be and is very important for all the programmers but not all the programmers works in Windows or MacOS so this is my request and for me will be very importat that my request will be taken in tally.

    Thanks and congratulations for the very good work in StarUML.

  6. XMI Im- and Export

    For interoperability with other UML modelling tools it would be nice when StarUML understand the XMI Format.
    So you can Im- and Export a model as XMI.
    Furthermore is the XMI format a good candidate for a version control systems.

  7. Hide visibility legend on attributes of classes and labels on association endpoints

    I edit an ISO/IEC standard and I would love to use this tool to generate the UML we use instead of Visio. However our drafting standards require that we omit the visibility legend from attributes and association labels (public, protected, private, package). If there could be a formatting option to hide these from the diagram you would save me a heck of a lot of work as I could generate a lot of the text of the standard from the XMI.

    Hiding visibility on attributes, operations of classes could be done by Show Compartment Visibility menu item of Format menu from Beta-3 release. But, currently there is no way to do on association ends. This is targeted to Beta-4 Release.

  8. Code Generator (Java, C++/C#...)

    You could, like the first version of StarUML make StarUML generate code, it was very practical !

    You just have to design your diagrams and then the skeleton of your class is done :) It was a very nice feature !

  10. Need feature to add relationships to diagram, when relationship is already defined in model

    For example:
    - draw the relationship line then select already existing relationship.
    - slect relationship in model browser and drop it on diagram - should show all related elements (classes, use-cases, etc).
    - select element (class) then select some context menu item "add all related elements".

  12. There's a problem when exporting component diagram

    In the component diagram, the dependency relationship is represented as half of the circumference. However, the figure is lost when exporting the diagram as JPEG or PNG file.

  14. Moving elements backwards and forwards

    It would be nice if we could actually move elements to the background and foreground.

    For example: I'm creating a diagram. I'm almost done.. but I would like to seperate the diagram by putting elements in some rectangles. I will drag rectangles to the playground and I would like those rectangles behind all existing elements.
    At the moment a new element appears on top of others and I can't change the "z-index" ;)

  15. Better use of colour

    It's great to finally use StarUML on a Mac.

    But I think the mostly dark UI is not that great. I'm missing a bit more of colour on the tool bar icons and on the Explorer window. StarUML 1 was sure more colourful but without excess. And it was great looking native on Windows. I'd love to have that same feeling with the Mac version. I would suggest that maybe a different approach for the UI would be better for the Mac, perhaps some layout (and colours!) like on Pixelmator would feel great.

    Now StarUML 2.0.1 becomes more colorful. We don’t know how you satisfied. Anyway, this feature will be marked as completed. If you have more suggestions on colours, please leave more ideas in detail. Thank you.

  16. Export diagrams menu

    I think there is no reason for the Export Diagram option to be on the Diagram menu. First place I went to when I wanted to export was File (there actually has an Export option there). I think only one option at this submenu would suffice (something like File > Export > Current diagram) and having the desired format selected on the save dialog. On the current menu options I'm punished for wanting to changing my mind and I even have to type the expected extension for the file or it's created without one.

    I'd go as far as to…

  17. Wrap label text

    In an activity diagram text quickly can become larger than the swimlane.
    I would suggest to enable text wrap when resizing an action smaller than it's text. Currently resizing only works if the action is larger than it's text.
