  1. Add stylus

    It'll be great to have some stylus support like DrawExpress do (http://www.drawexpress.com/). Many Windows tablets (and one from Apple now) are utilizing a stylus for comfortable handwriting.

  2. How to have finer control over positioning

    Sadly it seems I'm unable to position elements with greater control, there seems to be a minimum step size when moving horizontally and vertically which prevents me from have itens properly aligned making it impossible to have fully vertical and horizontal arrows.

  3. Add support for OCL, Object Constraint Language

    Add support for OCL, Object Constraint Language for classes.
    The OCL editor need to be smart with intellisense features.
    It can be introduced as a constraint linked to the class, method, attribute.

  4. Performance

    StarUML is just really slow for me.
    This might come down to using web technologies for the program and me not using my best PC but it's still not slow and I think a computer that can run Photoshop without any hassle should be able to run a UML diagram software.
    However, a usable performance would definitely be a killer feature to actually buy StarUML.

  5. Support automatic layout from the command line or from mdgen

    We would like to create some diagrams automatically and let StarUML perform some automatic layout directly from the JSON without starting the user interface.

  6. More verbose error message

    When drawing connections / relations StarUML sometimes just complains with a too simple error message, leaving the user unknown what the underlying problem really is and how it could be solved. E.g. draw "interface realization" just gives "Invalid connection" error popup but it does not explain _why_ it is invalid !?!?

  8. Resolution settings for PNG or JPEG export

    Recently I import diagrams in a LaTeX document as PNG, because the import of vector graphics is tricky. But the resolution is way too low for printed documents, so that I have to export it first to Inkscape as SVG and then convert it to 600 dpi PNG.
    It would be great to get asked for the desired resolution on export.

  10. Add support for multiple languages for the same model.

    Add support for multiple languages/locals for the same model. User can manage languages/locals and switch between them. Model documentation can be generated for the selected language/local.

  13. Entity Relationship Model

    We are missing two entity relationships in the crows foot notation.
    (1) 1 to many (with at least one required, i.e. (1..n)). Your notation supports 1 to (0 .. n)
    (2) 1 to zero or one (0..1)

  14. Add support for model element properties management

    Add support for model element properties management.
    User can add additional properties to a kind of model element
    for the Use Case model element,
    user can add, for example, post conditions, pre-conditions, business trigger, version, ...
    then whenever a new use case added to the model these new properties are accessible from the properties panel ...

    In summary, extend-ability of the model elements per model element type.

    The customized added properties can be used for documentation and code generation.

  15. Bug: It is impossible to reuse self messages across multiple time-sequence diagrams.

    It is possible to reuse regular messages by drag & drop them into a new diagrams, but it does not work for self messages.

  16. ERD diagram automation: "ReferenceTo" property combo should be prefilled with fields of the entity is already relates to.

    Imagine you have 2 entities with 1-to-many relation. That means that the second should have a key that references to the first entity. As soon as there is already relation in diagram - list of possible fields can be already obtained and displayed in dropdown-combo for "ReferenceTo" property.

  17. Patterns Library (Templates)

    Patterns libraries would be really great, just like in StarUML 5. User should be able to apply pattern templates to a model/design, as well as create custom pattern templates that can easily be reused across several models and projects

  18. Snap to grid

    It would be nice to have a "snap to grid" option so it becomes easier to position elements next to each other.

  19. Allow hyphens for naming subystems and swimlane

    In German we use hyphens for combining words coming from different languages, like "Bürger-Client" or "Compliance-Manager".
    When entering names like that in the diagram area, the StarUML does not allow it. Workaround for this is writing the name directly in the element's properties area.

  20. Refactoring of diagram would be very handy and exclusive

    I always felt the lack of a way of split automaticly a complex diagram in short ones. It would be amazing. Mainly in Sequence and Class Diagrams. This reduce complexity a lot.
