Role fields of an association display with a leading '-' (minus). (#280)

In a class diagram the role fields of a composite or aggregate association (those on the opposite side of the association line from the multiplicity) display with a leading '-' (minus).

There doesn't appear to be any way to remove it.

(This is a re-occurrence of a bug I raised on March 13 2013. Is there any way for users to reopen a previously closed bug?)

Minus will be hidden when you set the visibility of the end role to undefined - right click on association line, choose Properties, open Relationship tab and choose Undefined from Visibility combo box.

Undefined visibility was added as a reaction to the issue from March 13, 2013 and the other suggestion, when some users don't need to define visibility for attributes and operations.

Maybe I could add an option, which allows to define the visibility, but it will be not displayed in diagram.

(You can let me know when you want to reopen an old issue and I will reopen it, if it is the same issue.)

Ah I understand. Would it be possible to either have role visibility to be Undefined by default, or to provide a configuration option which allows the user to set the default role visibility please?

Yes, I can add it soon.
