Usage link custom stereotype is not saved. (#282)

Right click a usage link and select Properties.

Under the General tab in Stereotypes box click click Add Custom. Create a new custom stereotype called 'binding'.

If I now create another usage link and go into Properties I would expect to see the custom stereotype that I already created in the list of Available Stereotypes ready for me to use. But it is not there.

Yes, there are only stereotypes defined using Tools/Lists/Stereotypes...

I will improve handling of custom stereotypes in one of next releases.

I would quite happily use the Tools->Lists->Stereotypes dialog to add my custom stereotype but I can't see any way to work out which entry in the Tools->Lists->Stereotypes dialog equates to which types of link.

Some of them are obvious, the entry named Association creates a new stereotype for Association links, but I want to add a custom stereotype called 'binding' to the class diagram Usage link, but there is no entry for Usage in the Tools->Lists->Stereotypes dialog.

You should add the new stereotype for Usage under Dependency (the Usage is only stereotyped Dependency).

The stereotype module was not updated for a longer time. I will change it in the next release - I will implement some enhancements which allows to work with stereotypes easier.

Got it. Thanks again Dusan.
