What's New in Sirius 6.1

Management of hidden diagram elements

On diagrams a new mode allows to visualize elements that has been hidden manually. When this mode is activated, hidden elements (nodes, containers, edges) appear lighter on the diagram.

They can be made visible again by just double-clicking on them.

Coming with this evolution, a new dropdown menu gathering the layouting, visibility and standard mode has been added to the tabbar. The standard mode corresponds to a diagram editor without the layouting and visibility mode activated.

Organization of popup menus

The creator of a Sirius-based modeling tool can better manage contextual popup menus by using groups.

In addition to specific menus in the main popup menu, now it is also possible to group actions (displayed under a separator) and to create menus on several sub-levels.
