  1. Ability to read descriptions about currently selected toolbox element

    There is a lot of tools in a toolbox for each type of diagram... Some of them are familiar but some of them are - not, so it would be nice to read a small description what exactly the element being added is

  2. Short cuts to open any sub-diagram

    Problem Statement:
    Any entity in a model can be lot of diagrams in it. E.g a use-case realization can have activity diagram, sequence diagram etc. each of these diagram can again have sub-diagrams and so on.

    Now to view the sub-diagrams, we have to right-click -> select in explorer -> then navigate to the corresponding diagram

    [Request]
    when we click on any entity in the UML model, if there is a sub-diagram included previously for it, then it will be good to show that in the short cut menu. IBM Rational provides such a support.

    Generally it is good to…

  4. DPI scaling / HiDPI support in Linux

    In 2.4 HiDPI support was supposedly added in 2.4 for Mac Retina display and DPI scaling awareness added for Windows but under Linux it seems there is still no DPI size adjustment so the UI all looks tiny on HiDPI displays. Adding proper scaling/DPI adjustment support under Linux would help make StarUML more usable on Linux when using devices like the Chromebook Pixel or Dell XPS 13 as well as 4K monitors.

  6. Freely resize without constrained by text width

    Currently, for every object whose name or text content can be displayed (such as Note, Use Case balloon), its size is greatly constrained by text width and word wrapping.

    Also, if the content is a CJK text, even if word wrapping is used, an object can be quite large in width because a CJK text can be hardly wrapped using white-space-based word wrapping.
    For this situation, word wrapping should be performed like "break-all" of CSS "word-break".

  8. Make it availabe on RPM-based systems

    The Linux version of StarUML is currently only a .deb package. You should build it as .rpm as well, to support distributions other than Debian/Ubuntu.

  11. Bug: wordWrap option for Operations and Attributes takes effect in editor, but is not saved

    If you click wordWrap for an Operation or Attribute in a Class Diagram, the setting takes effect, but it does not save.
    Once you reload the diagram, the class object grows and messes up your diagram

  12. Add flexibility for links shape

    Actually when you create a link between two elements, it's kind of difficult or cumbersome to get the link to other sides of the elements to arrive at or to depart from.

    element
    |
    |
    element

    There's no way to achieve this:

    ---element
    |
    |
    |
    ---element

    Or:

    element
    |
    |
    -------
    |
    ------element

  13. To write a documention should be as easy as create it

    It's quite easy create a class, operation, atribute or role, but to describe the documentation, you need to access the lateral menu. This is inducing users to avoid to document. It should there a easy way to do it, like a shortcut, or even one of those little icons which you already use for another task.

  17. Decimal scale and precision in an ERD

    When choosing CHAR or VARCHAR for a column, the user is allowed to specify the size as an integer value. So entering 5 into the field would display CHAR(5) or VARCHAR(5) in the diagram. However, for DECIMAL columns, there should be two values - PRECISION which represents the total length of the number and SCALE represents the decimal places. So, DECIMAL(5,2) can represent a maximum value of 999.99 for the column. The functionality for having two fields to enter such values should be added to StarUML. If the SCALE field is empty, then it wouldn't be displayed in the diagram,…

  19. Two clicks on a strong dependency should edit the role properties instead of relationship itself

    When we creating a strong dependency, such as a agregation, composition or directly dependency, we are expecting edit its role, setting name and documentation. Today, to do this, you need to do a double-click in the ending of destination of dependency. This isn't easy to figure out and, as result, our generated classes are being generated with atributes (roles) without its names or descriptions, because we thought editing the role properties when we was editing the relationship properties.
