Hello all,

First off, activity diagram. Whenever I move the slider of (any) activity window: the elements move accordingly, but arrow corners keep original position, what leads to a big mess - see screenshots. This wouldn't be a big problem if I simply didn't use the sliders, but they reset after every Papyrus re-open and I have to re-calibrate them each time! Moreover, it wasn't me that placed them on the diagram - I've no idea when they appeared and I can't get rid of them! Resizing the activity window doesn't help, even if it's way bigger than the diagram itself.

That's how it looks normally:

That's an effect of vertical movement (looks much worse when you add horizontal movement too):

On a side-note I'll add that I can't move the activity window on a diagram, there's a red crossed circle if I try. Is it a bug or a planned behavior?

A similar problem is observed with state diagram. This one doesn't have the slider though, so I can't move it back to the original state. Any ideas on how can I restore my work?

Here's how it looked a few months ago right after I composed it:

And here's how it looks after I opened it today:

Does anyone has a solution for those problems? An interesting thing is that I didn't find any help at Google, can it be that others don't have such problems?

Hi Jakub,
effects like these sometimes happened on major version changes. Have these diagrams been created on a lower major version of Papyrus?

Hi Jakub,

Which version of Papyrus are you using ?
If you are on Oxygen, activate the following options from the preferences (for new diagram) and for your current diagrams :
- Snap to grid
- Snap to shape
- Grid spacing = 10 (in pixels)
Remove all bendpoints on your connector and then set them to Rectilinear

Save the diagrams
