I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. More default options

    Let us select "Word Wrap" as default option for new diagrams. I use it a lot.

    It is also, be awesome, if you let us create our own color palettes to define own styling for diagram elements. Default colours are not sufficient in every case.

  2. Allow to customise line style for all types of diagrams

    On activity diagrams, object flow and control flow are indistinguishable. And I sometimes use line style as another kind of visible "stereotype".

    Why not allow to set line style for all types of connections?

  3. "Add related shape" context menu function

    any shape supporting links to other shapes such as classes, components, etc... on a diagram should offer a "Add related shapes" context menu option to add all related shapes to the diagram.

    Additionally it would be nice if the user could specify the number of transitive dependency layers being considered.

  5. Change license verification/validation system

    License validation is a tricky thing, the last thing you want is users figuring out a way of getting your software for free.

    You might not be aware of the following gist which proposes a very simple way of "cracking" the validation system : https://gist.github.com/trandaison/40b1d83618ae8e3d2da59df8c395093a

    This mainly uses the fact that a local javascript file is used to validate the license : which is really not a good idea.

    My request would be to switch from the usual LicenseManagerDomain.js to another validation system (maybe something in Delphi, or an external compiled program).

  9. Make property element references navigable from the inspector

    As an example, it would be useful to be able to navigate by click or double click on the element referenced as the value of source or target within a use case. This should apply, overall, to all properties that reference other elements.

  11. Support UI/UX Prototyping

    I know the main concept of this great tool is support UML for engineer work (mostly in the backend). But, have you ever think in give also a little bit of support for UI/UX prototyping? It don't need to have a complete palete of component, but just the basics. Freelance coder sometimes have to model this for their clients, and having the chance for doing this from the same tool they use for another models, would be great.

  12. Add a Progress Dialog to the list of native dialog types

    I am working on an extension that has some potentially long-running tasks, and would like to be able to display a progress bar to the user while the tasks are running. Ideally, the progress dialog would support the following features:
    (1) ability to update percent complete (if not provided, ability to control and update messaging should suffice)
    (2) ability to set whether or not the user can continue interacting with StarUML while the dialog is open
    (3) ability to control messaging on progress dialog
    (4) ability to update messaging (i.e. current part of task being executed, similar to installation progress) …

  13. Support for simple markdown documents

    I'd like to create simple markdown documents in the project in order to describe how the application works or how consistance issues are solved.

    Documents should be exported as pages in html docs.

  15. provide a way to do a visual diff between two files

    Given the current staruml file and another, show what is different in the current vs the other file. The idea is for developers to know what changed in the design when an edit is uploaded. We could use the older version from our repository to do the diff. Alternatively, staruml could make a local history store or integrate with version control to provide that diff.

  16. add generic types to Class Diagrams

    User would like to have the ability to add a generic type (example: LinkedList<String>) as return values from methods in classes in Class Diagrams. Currently, only primitive and class types are allowed.

  17. Stop remapping common textfield shortcuts

    The use of CTRL+DEL or CTRL+Cursor keys is implemented in almost any Software for navigating and altering textfields more efficient. Using CTRL+DEL in a textfield should, in my opinion, delete the next word and NOT the element from the model, especially if CTRL+Z doesn't recover all the data afterwards.
    If I'm not working in a texfield I like the feature of deleting the element, but when I'm writing documentation it should do as expected.

  18. support of Cross functional flowcharts

    Flowchart is a basic connectors for representing the call flow. However i see the existing flowchart template is missing the concept of swim lanes.

    Cross functional flowcharts use swim lanes to provide an extra dimension by assigning each process step to a category. Most often the category is a stakeholder (person, role, or department).

  20. provide the ability to disable validation

    From time to time it is helpful to be not so strict in modeling first ideas. Therefore it would be very helpful, if the user has the ability to turn of UML validation. For example, it would be nice to have the option to scratch a first idea with just rectangles and arrows. Currently this is not possible. I cannot create two rectangles and have a directed link between those two but rather get an error "Invalid Connection (UMLLink)". Thx, /nm
