Name Styles, Better Glossary and Alias Editor

Software Ideas Modeler 11.40 includes several interesting improvements - multiple name styles, better glossary module and new alias editor.

Alias Editor

Editing element aliases (alternative names) is much easier, if you want to edit names for multiple elements. The new Alias Editor provides better view on names in all alias groups.

Improved Glossary

Glossary supports definition of other names and abbreviations. You can also define name for alias groups defined in your project. If you have alias group for different languages in your project, e.g. English, German and French, you can set an equivalent name for each of these languages to glossary term.

Glossary also supports links to other project parts. You can type @YourClassName and select the class from the drop down. Now when you rename the linked class in a diagram, it will be renamed also in description of the glossary term.
