still bad (#306)
Hi. it's been a long time since i wrote first suggestion. And SIM still have almost the same problem. Like a developer i even can't use SIM in elementary needs, just because it dosen't support them. It don't let me do diagrams, not depending on notation. For example i just want to use two rectangles with text inside and connect them by the line. What can be more elementary? I obviously can draw 2 rectangular and line from one to another, but they wont be work like objects. If i move rectangle line stands on it's place.
I can't make class or entity look like rectangle with a text in the middle. I can' make simple semantic network like this
Almost all the features already exist in SIM, but its not possible to use them like user want it to. After many hours of searching i naively thought that use case diagram lets me just connect some words together. But it's possible only for ellipses of use case. Not rectangle. not just words alone.
Such problem particularly could be solved by drawings tool, but nothing in it cant be used like an object. it's completely not possible to connect line with text or rectangle or something else. On other hand objects of some diagram types have needed behavior, but their look is not possible to change.
Autopath still can be stupid and do such picture
without autopath i can do even this http://hkar.ru/jqGY.
it's needed something in between them. some elegance of authopath and flexibility of "without autopath"
I need some type of diagram that allow "arbitrary" (didn find better word) using some elementary objects and connections and relation between them (like in others type but drawing type), not depending on some notation (standard types of diagrams) and also allow use objects from any (or some) other diagrams. in other words, some primitives should support extended function.
