Allow Diagram Frames to be scaled
« on: February 20, 2020, 08:28:50 am »

It would be very convenient a diagram frame  in a diagram could be scaled, e.g. to insert a diagram frame and a "thumbnail" on another diagram at a user selectable scale, e.g. 40%




Updated to clarify it is a diagram frame in a diagram

I think UML 2.5 spec says you can put almost anything on any diagram, but this may be pushing it....

Convenient indeed. Where in the list of features would that end up finally?

It may not be a high priority, but from a usability point of view this has irritated me for a long time.

I really need this as well.

For now I have to create images instead .. and then update the image each time the referenced diagram changes too much.
Example:

Thank you skiwi for the request!!
