Copy and paste problem in linux (Ubuntu)


I have problem doing copy & paste. I'm running SIM on ubuntu 12.04. I found that on windows, there is a popup window that asks for choosing an option. But in Linux the popup window does not appear.

thank you.

RE: Better Bug Reports

Nice! Will it be possible to add screen shots or other attachments? Do you need to label the report if it is a feature request, to make a distinction to bug reports.

RE: RE: Better Bug Reports

Yes, it will be possible to add attachments soon - I have to finish some details.

class diagram: template parameter

I'm evaluating version 5.2. When I try to save a class diagram containing a class with a template parameter, the program always crashes.

Use case diagramm

In loaded project elements of "use case" diagramm, which have been connected by "association" became disconnected. "Associations" are still present on diagramm, but they are no longer connected to other objects. Sorry for my bad english.

RE: Use case diagramm

Are you using the current version 5.02?

This problem could occur in version 5.00-5.01 when the diagram was in nested model. In version 5.02 was this bug fixed. However, if you loaded such project (with nested models) in 5.00 and save, the associations could be saved disconnected.

I apologize for this inconvenience. If you want, I can manually fix your file, when you send it to my e-mail: softwareideas @ softwareideas . net

RE: RE: Use case diagramm

Yes, i am using version 5.02. Project created in version 4.104, because in version 5.01 I can`t choose class for object in object diagramm. After several save/load in version 4.104 all diagrams "have frozen" - pressing by a mouse didn't make objects active. Then I have downloaded version 5.02 and project has revived.

Also, in this project try to export in XMI causes an error message:"System.NullReferenceException: В экземпляре объекта не задана ссылка на объект.

Tool->Option->Ok = Crash

Tool->Option->Ok = Crash even if no changes has been done.

Dusan Rodina - softwareideas.net 15 February 2012 13:15:51

RE: Tool->Option->Ok = Crash

This bug will be fixed soon in version 5.03. Meanwhile, you can use this workaround: Switch to Menu tab and then you can confirm the changed settings.

Bug in sequence diagrams

It seems there are somes bugs with nested fragment that have an interaction operand : interaction operand of child fragment is sometimes automatically re-associated with its parent fragment.

Also interaction operand of alt fragment is automatically resized to the alt fragment size when the fragment is resized (but you usually want it to split the alt fragment into two)

Finally ref fragment name is not displayed until you close your diagram and reopen it.

RE: Bug in sequence diagrams

It will be fixed in the next release 5.03 within few days.

Center Vertically

It appears that the Center Vertically and Center Horizontally menu options both perform the Center Horizontally operation.

I am no longer to do the equivalent of "Align Middle".

Are there plans to correct this bug?

Thanks for creating a very good product.

RE: Center Vertically

This bug will be fixed in the next release, which will be published within 5 - 6 days.

Bug 5.01

After installer finished en tries to start program:


Visual Studio JIT: An unhandled exception ('System.UnauthorizedAccesException') occurred in SoftwareIdeasModeler.exe [7040].


Version 5.0 didn't work either, I installed 5.01 in the same folder. Now I removed the program files, installed it again and it works.

RE: Bug 5.01

Thank you for notice. I'll do some adjustments in the installer settings for the next release.

You're welcome.
