  1. Multiple selections in Explorer

    In "Explorer" moving things to be sub items of diagrams seems to be a single item at a time experience (unless i missed anything.) Would save time to be able to control-click or shift-click to select multiple items in explorer to move.

      • 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…

        • A spanish version of the software

          I'm from a non english speaking country and I'd like to see a spanish version of StarUML. And I think there are a lot of people from non english speaking country who are expecting for a spanish version of the software, too.

            • About 'isQuery' usability

              Making a const method I check the 'isQuery' in property menu and the result shown in class diagram with '{query}'.
              But, writing the '{query}' in diagram cannot make the 'isQuery' property checked. How about applying this usability? The class diagram checks the user inputs. So, I thought it is a kind of such evaluation process. And, in my opinion, other properties could be applied like that.

                • Add command palette with standard shortcup Shift+Cmd+P

                  Add a command palette like in modern developer/conceptor tools (like SublimeText, Atom, VSCode, ...) for a quick access to all available commands.

                  See VSCode : https://code.visualstudio.com/docs/getstarted/userinterface#_command-palette

                  • Add ability to create a Diagram Legend

                    One of the cardinal rules of documentation is always have a legend. See e.g. Documenting Software Architectures. It would be nice to have the option to create a legend. Bonus points if StarUML can automatically generate the legend based on UML elements in the diagram.

                      • 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.

                        • Requirement items in UseCase description

                          It would be nice if a usecase descriptions can split in multiple requirement-items. Each items needs a short text field.

                          • Lock Position and scale of UML Element

                            I'd really like to see an option to lock a specific UML element to the workspace, so that if someone is making a namespace and has a lot of sub name spaces to move around they can avoid clicking on the containing one. I'm not sure how often people run into this when working with it, but I've found it somewhat vexing.

                            • Add "Paste" to right click menu. When in a mouse mode, it would be nice to not have to press Ctrl-V to paste e.g. an attribute name.

                              We should be able to, for example, double-click on "Attribute1" to select it, then right-click to paste from keyboard. It is possible to paste using Ctrl-V, but doing that many times gets annoying.

                                - Bob browse for MyFirstClass element in the Model Explorer
                                - Bob press F2 when on the MyFirstClass and in-place renames that element to MySecondClass

                                      • Step items in UseCase description.

                                        It would be nice if a usecase descriptions can split in multiple step-items. Each items needs a short text field.
