Effortlessly Create and Connect Multiple Elements in Software Ideas Modeler
In Software Ideas Modeler, the Toolbox feature allows you to quickly add multiple elements to your diagrams with ease. One of the options available in the tool button context menu is the Add Multiple option. This option allows you to choose an area on the diagram editor canvas and place elements within it. The way the elements are placed within the area depends on whether the width or height of the area is greater. If the width is greater, the elements will be placed from left to right. If the height is greater, the elements will be placed from up to down.
You can specify the names of the new elements by inputting them in a text box (that appears after specifying the area for the elements) with one line corresponding to one element.
Additionally, the Toolbox feature also allows you to add multiple elements connected with a relationship. To do this, you can drag the tool button of the box element over the tool button for the connector element. Then, specify an area on the diagram editor canvas, and type names for the box elements in the same way as described above for the "Add Multiple" option. This is a great way to quickly create diagrams with multiple connected elements, such as class diagrams or flow diagrams.
Using the Toolbox feature's Add Multiple option and the ability to add multiple elements connected with a relationship can save you a lot of time and effort when creating diagrams in Software Ideas Modeler. It allows you to quickly add multiple elements to your diagrams, so it is useful, especially when creating diagrams with a large number of elements, or when creating diagrams with a repetitive structure. It can save time and effort by allowing you to add multiple elements at once, rather than having to add them individually.
When to Use This Feature?
A great use case for this feature can be when creating flowcharts, state diagrams, or activity diagrams, in which multiple steps, states, or activities need to be created and connected in a specific order. This feature can make it easier to define the relationships between those elements and keep track of the order in which they occur.
It can be also useful during the early stage of requirement capture when you want to quickly capture a set of entities, actors, use cases, or scenarios and their relations.
