Hi Piotr,

I start with your third question

> 3). What is the difference between "UML2" and "UML2tools"?
> Why there are two diffrent newsgroups instead of only one?

UML2 is the guts. It provides an API to create, modify and (un)persist
UML models. Much of that is already provided by the EMF project which
UML2 makes use of.

UML2Tools sits on top of UML2 using its API to create UML models by
drawing diagrams. Your other questions are thus all related to
UML2Tools, I crosspost this to their newsgroup.


> 1). How to wrap long names e.g. of activities, associations?
> Without this I often have loooooong activities images on the diagram...
>
> 2). How to enable printing? I have printing disabled even if I install
> ALL the plug-ins avaliable (a lot of stuff...)

Hasta luego,
Felix

Hi,
>> 1). How to wrap long names e.g. of activities, associations? Without
>> this I often have loooooong activities images on the diagram...
Unfortunately, there is no way to wrap long names. This is a consequence
of https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=209648. We use gef labels
instead of GMF labels, however GEF labels are not wrappable. I haven't found
any request on this topic, feel free to submit one.

>> 2). How to enable printing? I have printing disabled even if I
>> install ALL the plug-ins avaliable (a lot of stuff...)
The question has been answered in this newsgroup earlier:

Best wishes,
Tatiana.
