  1. 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.

    • add generic types to Class Diagrams

      User would like to have the ability to add a generic type (example: LinkedList<String>) as return values from methods in classes in Class Diagrams. Currently, only primitive and class types are allowed.

      • Make property element references navigable from the inspector

        As an example, it would be useful to be able to navigate by click or double click on the element referenced as the value of source or target within a use case. This should apply, overall, to all properties that reference other elements.

              • Stop remapping common textfield shortcuts

                The use of CTRL+DEL or CTRL+Cursor keys is implemented in almost any Software for navigating and altering textfields more efficient. Using CTRL+DEL in a textfield should, in my opinion, delete the next word and NOT the element from the model, especially if CTRL+Z doesn't recover all the data afterwards.
                If I'm not working in a texfield I like the feature of deleting the element, but when I'm writing documentation it should do as expected.

                • support of Cross functional flowcharts

                  Flowchart is a basic connectors for representing the call flow. However i see the existing flowchart template is missing the concept of swim lanes.

                  Cross functional flowcharts use swim lanes to provide an extra dimension by assigning each process step to a category. Most often the category is a stakeholder (person, role, or department).

                  • 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.

                    • Add a Progress Dialog to the list of native dialog types

                      I am working on an extension that has some potentially long-running tasks, and would like to be able to display a progress bar to the user while the tasks are running. Ideally, the progress dialog would support the following features:
                      (1) ability to update percent complete (if not provided, ability to control and update messaging should suffice)
                      (2) ability to set whether or not the user can continue interacting with StarUML while the dialog is open
                      (3) ability to control messaging on progress dialog
                      (4) ability to update messaging (i.e. current part of task being executed, similar to installation progress) …

                      • Implement complete visibility of large Sequence diagrams

                        In large seqence diagrams, we should be able to scroll down to the lower portion of the diagram. As of now in v2.8.0, we are unable to scroll down to the lower portion of the diagram, under zoomed in condition; and when we are zooming out just enough to see the lower portion, we are unable to view what we are working on, unless we use a microscope.

                        • 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.

                            • Direction of arrowhead

                              The direction of the head of arrows is not aligned to the arrowline but to the node points for the line generation. So when the line has suden curve, the arrowhead is seem to be aparted from the arrowline.

                              • 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.

                                • 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

                                    • Document Meta-Data Box on PDF Prints

                                      In traditional engineering fields diagrams often have a box in the bottom right/left hand corner that indicates the date of the most recent revision, the author, diagram title, etc.

                                      When printing to PDF it would be nice if a similar feature existed with the information for the meta data being pulled from various sources:

                                      - Document Name: <MODEL> - <DIAGRAM>
                                      - Created Date : <CREATED_DATE_ON_FILE>
                                      - Date Modified : <LAST_MODIFIED_DATE>
                                      - Version Number : <optional version number>
                                      - Author : <from preferences or some other dialog>

                                      • Security / access to diagrams

                                        Hi, I was wondering if there's a way to make a diagram confidential within draw.io? Currently, anyone who would know the diagram's name would be able to access it by creating a copy of that diagram. This might be problematic if we want to map sensitive business processes.

                                        Even if we secure Confluence's page where the diagram is saved, it is still possible to access the diagram when we add a new draw.io macro on another confluence page and make a search by name when selecting which diagram we'd like to use as a template.

                                        Thank you.

                                          In Model Explorer, after removing an item by pressing ctrl+del, focus is missing. I'd like to move the focus using arrow keys for removing another items too.
