  1. Add a keyboard shortcut to add an attribute to a class without needing to use the mouse. Eg 'a' then 'enter' to add to last selected class

    Currently it is not possible (or not obvious to me) to add an attribute without using the mouse. You can use 'a' to activate an attribute but need to click a class to get it added. I'd like to be able to add an attribute to the currently selected class by pressing 'enter' so I don't have to take my hands off the keyboard when designing a class.

    • export in ecore

      Hi,

      I should be one of the only one using genMyModel to represent metamodel and not model, but it could be good to get an export to ecore and not only UML.

      • SQL generator

        Hi,

        As the generator generates persirted classes, it could be very useful to also generate the SQL "create tables" file.

        => 1 tool to generate code and SQL (so it could be important to add types to attributes and classes: "transient", "persisted")

        • collapsable/expandable linked sub-process

          When adding a Sub-process in a diagram it would be very useful to be able to create the sub-process in a different diagram and link this from the sub-process in the originating diagram. Also it should be possible to display a sub-process as either expanded or collapsed, whether it is linked or embedded.

          • Keep current model, when it can not be saved

            Instead of of reloading the model from what is stored server side when the connection is lost/changes could not be saved.

            Notify the user that changes couldn't be saved at the time. But do NOT throw away the changes the user has made!

            This could lose some valuable work and it is also unclear how many/which changes have been lost.

              • Comments on associations

                It would be great if you could add comment / attributes to associations. This opens up for creating E/R diagrams using UML syntax.

                • Events/Handlers

                  It would be great to have an easy way to include events (a la .NET events) and their corresponding handlers.

                  • about user experience

                    you guys may need consider more touch friendly user experiences, and add share, collaboration and community social layer upon the editor, and of course, APIs for 3rd party developers, to differentiate with visio, rational uml and other traditional desktop uml modeling tools.

                      Thank you for your great ideas!

                      That’s amazing as all the topics you mention are in our long-term roadmap. We share the same vision regarding the user experience!

                      The collaboration will be available (hopefully) this summer and we’ll also add the first features of the social sharing.

                      We can keep on talking by email if you agree. I guess your expertise in modeling or UML tools could be very valuable to improve GenMyModel.

                      All the team and I thank you again.

                      Happy modeling,
                      Tom

                    • Allow attributes in DataTypes

                      DataTypes should support attributes to create structured types.

                      For example: http://www.uml-diagrams.org/data-type.html

                        • Identifying PK and FK in Classes

                          It would be nice to identify the PK and FK with visual icons as simple of PK or FK.

                          • Organize tabs with mouse

                            When you open several class diagrams, you get multiple tabs but you can't organize them. It would be cool to be able to organize them, like dragging them with the mouse.

                            • Automatic Association between classes

                              So far, it is incredibly easy to use, and no need for all things usually others application offer. It is intuitive, almost natural.

                              I think that generating associations automatically after setting attributes it something good to implement. Let say I create a class Person and another Family, when I insert an attribute into Family and set his type to Person, that would generate a association from family to person.

                                    - some other classes are just business classes
