Hi

We would want name label texts to be centered so that when we start typing in the name label field the text "grows" both to the left and the right at the same time.

Is that possible via e.g. CSS?

Hmmm,

I now have
Label {
textAlignment:"center";
}

I have also tried with
*{
textAlignment:"center";
}

But nothing happens in my diagrams.
When I select a Label of say a class, and start typing inside it, the text just expands to the right.

Not sure what I am doing wrong.

Hi Patrik,

These new properties only work on Mars I think (Papyrus 1.1.0)

Regards,
Camille

Hi,

The property has been renamed from namePosition to textAlignment between M6 and M7:

463552: [CSS - Alignment] namePosition is similar to textAlignment, and should be renamed for consistency
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=463552

So you should try namePosition (but know that it is deprecated and won't work in the next update), or update to Papyrus Nightly, or wait until M7 at the end of this week (Papyrus nightly may be a little bit risky this week since we're already building M7 and our dependencies are moving, so you may have some difficulties to get a consistent build)

Regards,
Camille

Odd,

When I apply
*{
namePosition:center;
}
to my .css only those elements that have their name visible gets affected (Packages in my case) but those that have a Floating label (and no name label) does not get affected (e.g. Classes in my case).

I would want to accomplish the reverse, only affecting my Floating labels, which seems to be the intention of textAlignment as described in the css "manual".

How can this be done? Is it implemented in M7?

Hi

Thanks for the M7, it improved performance a lot in Browser context menus!

Regarding centered text, I have tried

Interface > Label {
visible:true;
textAlignment:"center";
}

in the M7 and this does not affect my floating labels for Interfaces.
What am I doing wrong?

Patrik
