I am relatively new to Graphiti and before I start, I wanted to know if the things I am planning to do are feasible.
(Currently I use the GMF generative approach, but I am not satisfied)
What I want to do with Graphiti:
I want to draw some elements on the diagram and when I click on a certain type of element, another diagram editor shall be opened, where I can model more details / the internals of this certain element.
When another tool has created an instance of my domain model, I wan't to import the model and get a visual representation of it. Then I can modify some of the content and finally can use it in my previous tool as well.
I want to have several types of diagram editors, each specifying a different view of the domain model.
Btw, the most severe drawback I have with GMF is, that I have a domain model which I am not allowed to change. So, in a lot of cases the generic approach doesn't work as expected because of missing containment references ... I hope this will be better with Graphiti ?!
Thanks a lot

as Aljoscha pointed out, there is no built-in concepts of compartments.
I think it boils down to different kinds of problems:
* No out-of-the-box support, but can be built on top (compartments, ports, , automatic zooming, etc.) (i.e. no need to modify Graphiti code).
* Not supported, but can be added in the Graphiti code: New types of decorators
* Deeper in the architecture and thus high effort: Animation
