Hello,

I'd like to use patterns to simplify the coding of my editor. As far as I can
see, a few features are not (yet) supported by the patterns - direct editing,
removal and deletion for example. Do you plan to add support for these
features? I'd be able to provide patches if man-power is the only issue... ;-)

Volker,

currently there are no concrete plans in this respect from our side.
Contributions are always welcome... ;-)

I'm working on it. :-)

I just noticed there's no way for a pattern _not_ to provide a Create
Feature. In my model, I've got a background element that is generated
automatically, cannot be deleted and should not be created manually. The
pattern does not implement the creation methods, but an empty palette entry is
generated anyway.

I'd suggest to add a method to IPattern that is used by
DefaultFeatureProviderWithFeatures.getCreateFeatures() to determine whether
the pattern provides a palette entry - what do you think? Is it okay if I
bundle this with the other extensions in a single patch?

Volker,

that sounds useful to me. Feel free to bundle that with the rest of your
extensions.

Thanks,
Michael
