We've got quite a large meta-model and we were hoping to use property descriptions as set in the gen-model to try and help our developers understand what various properties are for.

Unfortunately we're using Eugenia to generate a diagram editor which means that it deletes the GenModel file.

I know Eugenia supports polishing transformations but the property description text isn't a repetitive task so I'm not sure how I'd use them to re-fill the property descriptions.

How can I preserve the property description fields in the gen-model when re-generating with Eugenia?

Hi Phillip,

You can capture property descriptions in your .emf/.ecore metamodel by attaching @emf.gen(propertyDescription="...") annotations to your EAttributes/EReferences, and Eugenia will copy these over to the .genmodel. Does this help?
