We want to use Papyrus as the UML tool linked to a plugin we are developing for the design of services, in the context of a research project.
However, I have a problem with object flows and activity diagrams: It seems I cannot create object flows to link object nodes (data store nodes) and actions, the interface always asks to create pins. However, I do not want to create pins but want to use the shorthand notation showing an object node between two actions, separated by object flows (If I'm not mistaken this is explained in the "UML 2.3 superstructure" pdf page 418, and it should be semantically equivalent). I had the impression from previous projects that this notation was far more understandable to non-IT users than the notation with input/output pins, so it is fairly important to us.
So my question is: is this a current limitation of papyrus or is this the intended behavior? will it be changed before the first release?
I'm using the nightly release from last thursday on Helios.

Thank you,
