Hi,

In my metamodel, I provide an 'Annotation' concept. It contains a text attribute and can be associated with other Elements.

The diagram should display Annotations using the Note style as provided by Sirius. However, I am not completely clear on how to use this style.

First: is the body of such note represented by the Style's label attribute?
Second: does such note allow representation of a top level label and a body and if so, how to configure the style.
Third: even if setting the label's alignment to 'Left', it is still not completely displayed at the left margin. (See my screenschot.)

Any suggestions?

Greetings,
Wilbert.

Yes, it will display what is given in the "Label Expression" field.

No, there is only one label expression field. However, you can set an
expression that combines several properties of your semantic model.

In fact the label is aligned left/center/right but the inner text area
is centered. This is more obvious with a smaller text and an icon as you
can see in my screenshot. However, it sound reasonable to have the same
alignement for the inner text as the label widget so you can raise a
bugzilla.
