  1. Return the "Generate Word" doc capability

    The original's ability to export into a Word Template was brilliant and i truly miss it. For those that don't know - the original StarUML would export all of the diagrams, and notes/descriptions into a Word document. You would tell it where to put the diagrams etc. via key words in the Word Document template. it was an awesome way to maintain documentation, i could use our regular company documentation templates, add the keywords into the document template and bang.. always up to date, looks fantastic.

  2. Add direction of association name

    The direction of an association name is normally a small filled triangular arrow head pointing either left or right (◄ and ►) (◄ and ►). It makes reading an association easier.

    For example, say you have classes DEVICE and SCHEDULE with an association between them labeled "applies to." If there is no arrow, it's difficult to read: does the device apply to schedule or the schedule to the device?

    |DEVICE| ------ applies to ------ |SCHEDULE|

    With the arrow it becomes unambiguous:

    |DEVICE| ----- ◄ applies to ----- |SCHEDULE|

    The above is now read as "Schedule applies to device."

    The arrow…

  3. Hotkeys for most frequent features

    I'd love it if Ctrl + Shift + C would create a class whereever my cursor is at. Then I could selected it and press ctrl + a to add an attribute/variable, and ctrl + f to add a function (or operation).

    Also, in the properties panel, we cannot tab through options. Would be nice to have.

    Finally, I think the properties tab should be reordered with most frequent options highest, and others lower (name is fine, then type should come next, then visibility)

  4. 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

  5. ER Diagram, Generate DDL

    The CREATE TABLE statements generated from Generate DDL option, should also include foreign key columns in the child tables.

    For e.g. If 'deptid' is a foreign key from 'Departments' table (i.e. parent) in 'Employee' table (i.e. child), column 'deptid' also should be automatically included in the CREATE TABLE Employee statement. Appropriate foreign key constraint statement also should be mentioned at the end. Thanks.

  8. Specify the order of diagrams when printing to PDF

    Currently, when I print to PDF and choose all diagrams, the diagrams are created in some seemingly random order that I cannot predict or understand. I want the ability to automatically order the pages according to the same order I see either in Working Diagrams, or the Model Explorer, or the Diagram Thumbnails. To me, it would be most intuitive to be able to drag and drop and order the Diagram Thumbnails, and have the print function respect that.

  13. Diagram background color

    Please let us change diagram background color, which is now white. White is too aggressive for eyes in dark environment ... I would prefer to change to some greyish tone.

  14. How to manage versioning (in particular merge) of .mdj file?

    Could be useful to keep storage of UML in different mdj files linked together by a project file.

    This will decrease conflict in merge.

  18. Interaction Overview Diagram is needed!

    Interaction Overview diagram is so much similar to the Activity diagram. It lets us to see the bigger picture of the project flow and shows how several interactions work together.

    It uses different interaction diagrams(Sequence, Communication, Timing) and ties them together to make a single complete picture of the interactions.

    If it would be added to StarUML then I can say that StarUML has all of the necessary tools to rock n roll!

  19. Allow adding a forward slash character in a sequence diagram's message

    When adding a / character in the name property of a Message in a sequence diagram on the canvas it shakes and doesn't allow it. However I am able to add / characters in the name property using the Editors UI.

  20. Pan with wheel button click

    Many packages allow panning with the wheel of the mouse held in. This allows very fast panning which is very useful for large diagrams.
