  2. 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.

  3. 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?

  5. 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.

  6. bug:windows下没法同时开启多个项目文件。

    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。

  8. C4 Model diagrams support

    There is yet another way to model the software architecture with C4 models where C1 is a helicopter view and C4 is a class diagram zoom level (see more https://c4model.com/). Components used for C4 modelling are simple but have some notation rules.

  9. Support UI/UX Prototyping

    I know the main concept of this great tool is support UML for engineer work (mostly in the backend). But, have you ever think in give also a little bit of support for UI/UX prototyping? It don't need to have a complete palete of component, but just the basics. Freelance coder sometimes have to model this for their clients, and having the chance for doing this from the same tool they use for another models, would be great.

  11. Allow changing of element in another

    When we are designing a system, is common we change our mind about use an interface or class. Models is just a draft until they generate code.

    Would be nice be able to change an element originally create as interface to class and vice-versa.

  12. Support saving styles

    I use colors to enhance diagrams following Peter Coad's ideas with an extension by Carlo Pescio for design. I'd like to have a set of predefined styles I could easily apply when I create a new element

  13. Support for simple markdown documents

    I'd like to create simple markdown documents in the project in order to describe how the application works or how consistance issues are solved.

    Documents should be exported as pages in html docs.

  16. Allow to customise line style for all types of diagrams

    On activity diagrams, object flow and control flow are indistinguishable. And I sometimes use line style as another kind of visible "stereotype".

    Why not allow to set line style for all types of connections?

  17. Using non alphanumeric characters in element names like . , - ( ) etc.

    Currently I can place a dot or colon or other non alphanumeric character in the name of the element only if I edit the name in the properties window but not in the editor interface. I would like to enter these in the editor.

  18. provide a way to do a visual diff between two files

    Given the current staruml file and another, show what is different in the current vs the other file. The idea is for developers to know what changed in the design when an edit is uploaded. We could use the older version from our repository to do the diff. Alternatively, staruml could make a local history store or integrate with version control to provide that diff.

  19. ER Layers

    It would be good to be able to model all 3 layers of an ER/Data Model Diagram from one ER layer :
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Logical_data_model )

    It would require addition properties for elements and then columns, and a way for relationships to be managed.

    But then at the clock of a button, you could display the CDM, LDM and PDM.
