Creating line fan outs impossible (#463)
I just started using Software Ideas Modeler. It may be my noobness but I'm trying to create a fan out between nodes(one node connected to many other nodes).
Creating all the association lines is a PIB because the interface is awkward, the lines anchor points tend to jump around to different points if one doesn't carefully pay attention to where they drop the point on the item. Also, I can't easily move a group of connected lines, say, if I want to make more room. The programming logic for the line handling seems awkard and definitely how other apps deal with it.
I spend about 30 mins trying to tweak lines to get them to look right and figure out why things are jumping around like they are(sometimes the initial anchor points attaches itself to the edge of the window. It seems like it's hard for anchor points to be "free". They have to be attached to an object. This is probably why the interaction feels clunky. The snapping logic should take into account distance and if the anchor points are too far from anything to snap too, they should float.
