No outline view in default UML editor? [message #1240012] Wed, 05 February 2014 14:17 Go to next message
Eclipse User
Hi!

I'm just wondering.. is there a reason why the Outline view is disabled
in the default UML model editor? Found in UMLEditor:

/**
* Returns whether the outline view should be presented to the user.
* <!-- begin-user-doc -->
* <!-- end-user-doc -->
* @generated
*/
protected boolean showOutlineView() {
return false;
}


Cheers
Patrick

Hi

Probably for the same reason as the Sample Ecore Editor; it would be
redundant.

However if you use any large unfriendly model such as UML.uml, you will
find that the lack of alphabetic ordering makes finding classes a real
pain. The outline can have an alphabetic ordering option, so it is not
redundant after all.

How about a Bugzilla?
