Diagram settings for showing parts and drawing stars

Version 6.70 offers many interesting improvements. Now you can draw configurable stars and easily set which parts of elements should be displayed for the whole diagram. Also few bugs were fixed.


Program allows to define which parts of elements should be displayed for the whole diagram. Now you don't need to specify these settings for each element. However, each element can override the default diagram settings.

Show Parts in Diagram Properties Dialog

Drawing group in toolbox has a new tool - Star (1). It allows to draw any star you want. You can add or remove points (2) to create any-pointed star. You can also adjust the size of star tips (3).
