Duplicate diagrams, convert elements and manage filters with 7.10

Version 7.10 is a new feature version of Software Ideas Modeler. It allows you to duplicate diagrams, convert elements and manage filters. There are also other improvements and bug fixes.


You can make copies of diagram using new Duplicate feature (menu Diagram/Duplicate). It allows you to specify the kind of copy (independent/shared model), name prefixes and suffixes and also to create relationship diagram between original and the new duplicated diagram.

Duplicate Diagram

Now it is easy to change the type of element - you can convert one or more elements to another type with Convert feature (menu Element/Convert).

Element  Conversion

Filters were present also in previous versions, but from this version you can manage them easier using Filter Manager (menu Diagram/Filter/Filter Manager). You can edit, duplicate or delete them. You can export your filters and import new filters. The filters themselves were improved - now you can filter by tagged values.
