Hello,
before asking my question, i would say thanks for providing Papyrus. It's a very useful tool for me to model complex systems and seems to be a serious alternative to some commercial tools.
I'm mainly using Papyrus to create SysML-models and -diagrams. During creation of a Block Definition Diagram (bdd) with composite association i'm unsatisfied with the representation with a lot of labels. These are making my diagram very confusing. I'm wondering if there is a way to customize the appearance in order to make the labels invisible so than only the line is visible? I've read about css stylesheets but i don't understand how to write and apply them.

this way the transition is currently represented:

index.php/fa/34652/0/

and this way it should be for me:

index.php/fa/34653/0/

Thanks for your help.

If you want such thing to be applied as default setting, CSS is the way to go. If you want it just for a single or some occurrences, you can just click the respective label(s) to select them and hit "delete" on your Keyboard. That will remove the labels from your diagram.

thank you for your quick answering.
@Benedikt Bauder
i've tried your suggestion and it works if i use "delete from diagram". if i use "delete selected item" the whole transition will be deleted.
@Adriano Carvalho
if i find some more time, i will look into the usage of css. it seems to be a little more complex.

I've found still another way to hide some labels and elements from diagrams by using the filter functionality. right-click on transition->filters->Show/Hide Labels. it works very good for me because i can easily select which labels to show and which to hide.

Hello,

For the CSS, you can create for example a "style.css" file in the Eclipse project. For your case, add the following css to the file
Association > Label {
	visible : false;
}


Then apply this css file to a diagram by selecting a diagram, select style, "+" button in "diagram style sheets" field. You can also apply to it to the full model.

Yoann.

You can also
1. click on the association on the diagram to select it
2. select "Filters" --> "Hide All Labels" in the context menu
to change the appearance.

But this only alters the appearance of the individual association.
