Great work.

Would be possible in future versions to add a flow of events / use case detail editor similar to this:

Also some textual analysis tools would be great.

And what about mysql reverse engeneering?

Maybe for version 5;)

Keep up the great work.

Thank you.

Yes, I plan to add such features.

It is uncertain how many of these features will be really included in version 5, but I hope that the most of them.

Donation stuff

Please remove the donation/purchase request dialog that pops up when closing the application, it's just too annoying.

And it's useless.

Fact: if I'm going to donate money I won't do it because of your persistence.If I have the money and can send it to you, I will certainly donate some money, but when I can't, your persistence just pisses me off. You could turn your app ad-supported or something, but please give up the current approach.

Thanks for the great LIGHTWEIGHT tool. :)

RE: Donation stuff

I will try another approach in the next version. The current approach with request dialog is two - three times more successful than than the previous one without this dialog. However, it is still not enough for full-time development. I hope the new approach will be less annoying and with better number of sold licenses and donations.

Thank you. :)

Another request; Could you use ClickOnce as the installer program? It is far less intrusive and more streamlined.

RE: RE: RE: Donation stuff

I don't plan to use ClickOnce. Although, it is more simple, it has many restrictions and less options.
