        • enable markdown next in comments (perhaps elsewhere)?

          I'd like to style text in comments. Markdown would be particularly useful (and it would enable links as well).

          • add url to objects

            I'd like to be able to add links to external documentation on various entities (classes, class attributes, etc). Links in comments would be helpful too.

            • Real time connection with diagram

              We would like to extend the functionality of a diagram by doing a real time check of the content. We would like to get the data real time, without doing an export of the data.
              Since we are using BPMN, we would like to do a BPMN-export without a user action, either by calling a GMM-service or doing a periodic (say, every 10 seconds) export of the data.

              • Make deleting classes harder...

                We have multiple users in the same project. Someone accidentally deleted an object and lots of other work was done by others since the deletion, so the model history did not show the change. It would be good to make it more difficult to delete objects (a confirmation message? or just make the delete button actually do a hide?).

                • Fold/unfold operations/attributes of UML objects

                  Would it possible to implement a mecanism to fold/unfold to display of operations and attributes of a class in class diagrams.
                  This would help make class diagrams easier to read. When folded, it gives a nice overview. Unfolding let the reader drill down into details regarding classes/interfaces.

                  • Web site modelling diagram

                    Hey - A web site (or mobile app) modelling diagram would be nice. I think there is a project called WebML that is supposed to be a standard for this! Just something that allows us to map out our web site, and maybe put some notes as to what each page represents.

                      • Class- or Diagram-level option to show operation parameter names.

                        You can currently show operation parameter names by selecting an operation and checking the box:

                        Properties -> Appearance -> show names

                        Doing this for all operations in a diagram is _tedious_. I would like to show the parameter names for an entire class or diagram.

                        • textarea for custom properties

                          Custom properties as rich text / textarea entry. Currently I can only add very simple custom properties as they have just a small input field. I want to be able to add some text like a detailed output description or a code snippet

                          • Make it easier to make all methods show names

                            With large classes with lots of methods, it takes a lot of time to turn on "show names" for each separate method. Some global setting or the ability to turn this on at the class/diagram level would be really useful.

                            Thanks, you guys rock!

                            • Allow configuration of size and position

                              Sometimes we want to create "perfect diagrams", that's to say diagrams with a good visual aspect to send them to our customers.

                              To do this it would be great to be able to configure element sizes and positions with precision.

                              This could be the same feature as Visio with its "Size & Position" dockable window.

                              In Visio the following options are available :
                              - X
                              - Y
                              - Width
                              - Height
                              - Angle (don't know if this is a good idea for UML...)
                              - Pin pos (not user friendly)

                                        It would be nice to have copy/paste feature for the diagrams. Actually, I just wanted to create a subject and move an existing use case from/to/between subjects which is not possible in the current version.
