Good day, colleagues!

How can I create several representations of the same class in the main window of UML2Tools?

I need this because if class has many connections with other classes(aggergations, associations, inheritance), diagram becomes very confusing.

So, in this case it's convenient to create "duplicate" of target class and make new connections on the "duplicate" class, assuming that target class has connections from both "original" and "duplicate" representation of the class.

In StarUML I can do such thing by just Copy+Paste. In UML2Tools Copy+Paste creates ANOTHER class with the same attributes. This is not what I want.

"Create Shortcut" is what you want.
