  1. opening files from share

    Currently (with v2.0.0-beta9 (2014/10/01) ) it is not possible to open files from file shares (like SharePoint WebDAV). StarUML silently does nothing, either from the file open dialog or via Windows Explorer.
    This feature is very important for collaboration

        If diagram has big size the best manner of navigation is mouse handlers - when mouse pointer leave the document screen then in this direction view is moving, customer can navigate in horizontal or vertical direction or both by only move mouse

        • in the toolbox show only the icons

          instead of icons and text ,which takes up a lot of space, show only the icon . Show the text when the user hovers over an icon. That way there will be more canvas space.

          • Portrait mode

            My Windows desktop is Portrait mode, with 1080x1920 resolution. But the Explorer, Editors, Properties, Documentation panels are docked in the east side, the center workspace is very narrow. I suggest the tool panels can be dragged to other places.

                • Moving association labels and multiplicities with the cursor keys

                  While <ctrl><arrow key> can be used to position classes in a class diagram, I can't use it to precisely position association names, endpoint labels or multiplicities. It would help me to get tidy diagrams if this were possible

                  • Can alignment also align association labels and multiplicities as well as classes?

                    It's great that we can align classes to make the diagram tidy, but its a pain arranging the association labels and multiplicities to get the diagram really tidy

                      • Provide a configurable table view

                        Many business focused tools provide a way to view elements within a table presentation. The uses would be to view lists of items, with customized columns that are populated based on a configured relationship you want to view. For example, the list would be Use Cases and a column could be to show any actor that has an association to the use case. A second column would be any activity that is related to the use case, and so on.

                        The second use would be as a matrix. If you want to view rows of configured elements vs columns of…

                        • Make tools windows dockable, so that I could move them to my second display.

                          Multi-display setups are common this days, and it's a pity that I cannot detach tools and place them on my second display to get more room for diagram on my main display.

                            • Fix stereotypes

                              Setting the stereotype of a class to <<boundary>>, <<entity>>, <<control>>, <<actor>> or any other predefined stereotype should automatically change the display of the class to that of its icon, as well as the icon on the Explorer window to reflect this.

                              Unfortunatelly, none do it. Actors are only created from the Use Case View but can be used regularly from it. The other mentioned stereotypes even have shortcuts from the class diagram (seek for Robustness at the bottom of Classes) but only a crossed square is shown for its icon.

                              Plus, it would be great if we could define other…

                                We can zoom in or out of a diagram while using the app but when exporting the zoom of the diagram is fixed. One should be able to define a zoom to render diagrams when exporting in order to produce better quality images that could be used in documents and presentations.

                                    The menus are difficult to navigate without access keys. I regularly use Alt+F to get to the File menu but since there's also a Format menu and neither have an access key it gets me nowhere. Very annoying.

                                      • Extended modeling based on uml

                                        The possibility to make models based on uml, like UWE or Rational Rose, or others. Extensions to StarUML to make those would be great, it would enhance the power of the software.

                                        • Exporting to 1.x version or saving to .uml for compatibility with lower version

                                          I'm happy that StartUML2 can import the format of lower version with .uml extension.
                                          But it will be great if it supports the feature exporting to lower version.

                                          Running StarUML in mac is very comfortable and Great !!!
