  1. implement feature for displaying hidden associations in the diagram

    Currently there is no way to get back the associations which have been removed from the diagram, but not from the model

  2. fix problem which causes first attempt to open another model to fail

    Currently attempt to open another model fails almost every time in error (OSX). Only indication of that is a quick error message which is shown just briefly and easy to miss. After failure StartUML opens previous model which could lead to loss of data if user doesn't notice it. Second attempt to open the model works always.

  4. Create "back of napkin" style option for diagram

    I am using StarUML as an agile means to communicate initial sketches of system design prior to any code being written.

    As such these designs typically explore hypothesis about the system design. It would be great if the diagrams could reflect this by looking more informal and hand drawn.

    I think the current rendering of the diagrams looks great as formal designs.

    For Agile development, it would be great to be less formal and convey to the team they have wiggle room to make adjustments on the design.

  6. Double click to resize app window to fit screen (MacOS)

    Most apps on the Mac use double click above the toolbar (the bar containing the Close, Minimize and Maximize icons on the left) to resize the app to fit the screen. This would be very useful since the app always starts as a partial screen. Automatically fit the app to the fit the screen at startup also would be an alternative solution.

  7. Ability to change text color outside the diagram

    I can change the theme to light or dark, but in both themes the text remains some form of gray that's not as easy to seperate from the background as it could be. If I switch to the light theme the shadow effect even makes the text look slightly strange.

    Any way to change the text color so the text will stand out more will be highly appreciated.

  9. Allow us to display namespaces in a fully qualified format with double colon separators in between names

    Current namespaces is in the following format:
    "from package"

    Instead have namespaces displayed in the following format:
    "package::subpackage::name"

  12. Allow for text alignment options in elements

    Create the ability to align text in relation to the element to which it belongs. For example: Top Left, Bottom Right, Middle Center.

    Vertical Alignment should offer: Top, Middle, Bottom
    Horizontal Alignment should offer: Left, Center, Right, Justified

  16. Support Q_OBJECT for Qt based C++ project

    I'm using Qt framework for GUI layer with some pure C++ projects.
    StarUML is really nice tools for investigate the software design however current version of this is not support Q_OBJECT in Qt based header file.
    The result for Qt based header files, there is no class name in the class 'box' on StarUML.

  17. Edition dialog does not allow simple creation of UML state transitions

    State diagram transitions, as you well know, are in the format:

    Event [predicate] / actionlist

    However, the edition dialog does not appear to make evident that simplicity, but offers, among others, the following entries:

    - name
    - guard

    This is not identical to EVENT [pred] / ACTION LIST that I would expect to see.

    Perhaps I misunderstood how starUML creates UML2 compliant transitions?

  19. Change the diagram editor background color

    We can change the diagram background color, but not the editor background color. This is by far my biggest complaint with the tool and the one thing holding my team back from adopting it.

    To be clear, I'm referring to the area of the tool with the grid background. The one that displays all of your diagrams.

    bug:windows下没法同时开启多个项目。

    比如已经开启了A.mdj文件。然后开启B.mdj文件。虽然开启了两个窗口,但是显示不正确,会变成开启了两个A.mdj工程。
