RE: RE: Export as vector graphics

I'm using your program on mac via mono.

I can't not get a correct rendering of .svg-files in either Google Chrome or Inkscape.

Simple example:

Chrome: http://download.koldsgaard.dk/chrome.png

Inkscape: http://download.koldsgaard.dk/inkscape.png

RE: RE: RE: Export as vector graphics

Export was partially improved in version 4.60. This problem will need more work to be completely solved.

(The problem is in a method of Mono, which is not correctly implemented.)

text and comment improvement

Is it possible to add carriage return handling into comment or text elements?

There's also a bug when editing comment or text elements : if you move the characters cursor using up or down arrow then you exit editing mode.

generate documentation - temp folder

SIM 4.10 - is pretty and pretty good. When creating a document it tries to use a subfolder on programs folder. Windows 7 will not allow it. Maybe setting a temp folder in environment strings would help ? System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Path C:\Program Files\SoftwareIdeasModeler\Temp\0c91f4ab-5141-4987-9d57-89bfd19b68ae käyttäminen on estetty ( i.e. access denied ).

communication diagrams message arrow

In communication diagrams, messages arrow are not meaningfull unless you use horizontal messages. Worst case is when they are vertical, then you don't know which way is pointing the message arrow.

RE: communication diagrams message arrow

Improved in version 4.15.

Problem when add new model

SIM 4.10

OS: WindowXP SP3

Side bar tab Project ..step problem or my mistake, after create new project

step 1. create new model1

step 2. add diagram1

step 3. Right click on project and select Add Model


I need to add model2 after project but result in step3 display aftermodel1.

can you advise me?.

RE: Problem when add new model

If you select 'Project' item (clicking on it) in the project tree and then use 'Add Model', you get the desired result.

I will probably change this behavior in the next version - so models will be always added in Project not in the selected item in the project tree (it remains possible using context menu).

associations not displayed in version 4.10

Most of my associations (but not all) aren't displayed anymore with new 4.10 version, but they still exist and are selectable in "Hierachical View".

RE: associations not displayed in version 4.10

It should be corrected in version 4.15.

if it can export all my diagrams into images in a same time, that will be better

Dusan Rodina - softwareideas.net 15 October 2010 9:44:00

RE: export everything to images

I think this could be part of version 4.20.

CRC card still hard to use, hard to edit different field.

Dusan Rodina - softwareideas.net 15 October 2010 9:39:37


I will try to improve in the next version.

EDIT: In version 4.15, which was released a while ago, editing of CRC cards was improved.
