Ordering Elements
« on: May 15, 2006, 03:15:59 am »
I have created an Activity Diagram and for the RTF documentation, wanted to order the various objects in the Tree (And then print out in that order - Order By Tree)
When I use the Move Up/Down options, I can move DecisionNodes, Intial/FinalState bits up/down but cannot move them up ahead of the Activities in the list (e.g to put InitialState description first as in my flow)
Is there a way to achieve this?

Hello Guy, you should be able to move any element to any place in the browser tree as long as it is on the same level then the other elements. However, the uppermost elements on every level are the diagrams.

If your initialState is inside an activity, you can drag it to any other place in the browser tree (e.g. one level up) by using the mouse. Just drag it to the appropriate package or activity  (or other) symbol. Afterwards you can move the initialState with the up- and down-option.

Guy,

You need to have "Tools | Options | Allow Free Sorting" checked.
