Hello,

I've created an Activity model using XText.
Now, I want to load the model in an Activity Diagram (to visually check
the correctness of the model) and I am facing a few issues:

1. ValueSpecificationAction is not represented on the diagram. I
couldn't find a toolbar creation action for it either. Is there a reason
for not supporting it?

2. Why do all edges need to be placed in the Activity?
StructuredActivityNodes also have edges. If I place all edges in the
Activity, everything gets too polluted. The edges could go in the first
reachable common parent of StructuredActivityNode type.

3. Why do you accept Activities only from Packages (or Model)? An
Activity that is a "method" of an Operation needs to belong to the
Operation's Classifier, otherwise a warning appears in Problems View.

Thanks,
Lucian

ValueSpecificationAction is presented on current version of the Activity
diagram, there is 14th tools on the tool bar to create one.

I have already fixed a problem with containment of ActivityEdge into
ActivityGroup. Please try last version of the UML 2 Tools. If problem still
takes place, just submit a request assigned to me in bugzilla.

Unfortunately it's not implemented yet and it's not planned for 0.9.0
version. Hopefully it will be done in next version. Anyway request in
bugzilla would be appreciated :)

Best regards,
Sergey.
