I loved Papyrus with all its features and possibilities from the very beginning, but I never used it because of one trivial reason: problems in adjusting the appearance. This is not a big deal in "daily business" and engineering, but I also build lectures and take lots of screenshots, so I want to visualize diagrams in a "common" way.|
In fact, Papyrus offers more possibilities than most other tools. However, an important flag seems to be buggy since years. Therefore, I wanted to ask, if this is an "known" issue. I would be looking forward to use Papyrus as my favorite UML tool.
The problem (#1):
Why are the flags for showing/hiding the visibility of operation and it parameters not independent from each other? I want to show "+ operation ( param : int )". But the only possibilities I have are "operation ( param : int )" or "+ operation (+ param : int )". The later version is almost never shown in regular publications.
There is almost the same problem with modifiers. However, I can see two flags "modifiers" and "parameter modifiers". The problem is that "parameter modifiers" does not switch anything and "modifier" switches the visibility of both (operation and its parameters)
I am using Papyrus 0.10.0.v201302090551
I didn't want to ask a question until now, because I thought that the new CSS feature could help. However, according to the only resource I found (http://www.eclipse.org/papyrus/usersTutorials/resources/PapyrusTutorial_OnDiagramStylesheets.pdf), showing/hiding elements with CSS is not possible yet.
Are these issues known? Shall we enter a "bug"?
