This bug will be fixed very soon - within one or two days. (It seems to conflict with previous version.) I apologize for inconvenience caused to you.

Confirmation dialog

Hi! Is it possible to add an option which will disable the messages: " Do you really want to close this dialog? Any changes made will not be applied".

Thanks a lot.

Dusan Rodina - softwareideas.net 29 January 2012 16:54:58

RE: Confirmation dialog


Not now, but it will be possible in version 5.0. I have to finish only few things to complete it. After more than one year of development and many postponements, it should be published no later than February 6th, 2012.

Bug on Activity Diagram

For transitions between two activities / actions the curved type of line does not work. When you select all objects (CTRL-A) the selection (in blue) for the wrongly painted transition follows a curved path though.

RE: Bug on Activity Diagram

Version 4.104 will fix this problem - it will be released this week.

I have tried to reverse engineering a C# made with VS2010 and .net 4.0 project with WPF, according to your instructions. In the name space it does not appear anything, so I can't make any reverse engineering.

¿Any sugestion?

Tanks a lot


Dusan Rodina - softwareideas.net 2 January 2012 13:39:29

RE: Mr.

In current version of Software Ideas Modeler, reverse engineering is supported only up to .NET 3.5.

.NET 4.0 will be supported in Software Ideas Modeler 5, which will be released soon.

(probably) custom styles problem


first I want to thank you for great piece of software ;)

Regarding my problem - it seems that SIM failed to properly load my custom styles for communication diagram. I created new project, created diagram with own custom styles (also saved it to *.simss) but when I loaded the project, everything in diagram is grey.

Also it looks like the elements lost their names.

When I tried to load the styles on completely new project, SIM seemed to load only 4 styles instead of all 7.

I can send project/simms and before/after screenshots if you want.

RE: (probably) custom styles problem


thanks for notice. Please, try this hot fix, it should solve your problem with styles. If not, let me know. This fix will be included in version 4.104.

RE: RE: (probably) custom styles problem

Thanks for patch, I tried and it probably solved the problem with styles loading, I see them all in Styles tab but they are still not applied to elements when I open saved project (I tried it on completely new project to eliminate the possibility of previously corrupted file.

Also as I wrote before - when I open the diagram, names of elements are empty.
