How to Wrap Swimlane Titles? /Difference between Merge/Join?

Postby beckyhoke@gmail.com » Thu Mar 29, 2018 9:25 am

Hi There,

I am fairly new to magicdraw. Currently training for SysML. Also trying to learn MagicDraw/DoDAF/UPDM as we go. Here are a few "New to MagicDraw" questions I have come across where google search couldn't help me.

1. Is it possible to wrap the swim lane titles? There is a wrap words (true/false) option in symbol properties. But the wrap feature does not seem to work when checked “true”.

2. What is the difference in logic for a merge versus a join? Or is there a difference? Right now we have been using these to help clean up lines.

Thanks for your advice and help!

Hello,

1. Can you give us information what version of product are you using and is it an Activity diagram or SysML Activity diagram?

2. For various elements descriptions, please check the UML specification, as most SysML elements are inherited from UML:

15.7.20 JoinNode [Class]
15.7.20.1 Description
A JoinNode is a ControlNode that synchronizes multiple flows.

15.7.21 MergeNode [Class]
15.7.21.1 Description
A merge node is a control node that brings together multiple alternate flows. It is not used to synchronize concurrent
flows but to accept one among several alternate flows.

Thanks for your answer for #2.

I use Cameo System Modeler 18.5 SP2 with the UPDM 2.0 18.5 SP2 plugin.
The swim lanes are on a OV-5b Activity Diagram.

Hope I answered your question?

Thanks,
Becky

Dear Becky,

Now it is impossible to wrap Swimlane titles. This issue is known for us and is scheduled for fixing.

The only workaround to wrap Swimlane header text is to break the name by using Enter key. We do not suggest to do so, because that will affect the Containment tree names and names in symbols.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience you are experiencing. We appreciate your understanding in regards to this matter.
If you have more questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us.

Kind regards,
No Magic Customer Support
