Re: Feature wish-list - the most important one

I'm going to add my agreement that more features might be okay, but it's just fine as it is. I've tried several different diagramming apps, but so many of them are too complicated. I spend more time trying to figure out how to display things than I do thinking about the ideas I want to get across or...

Ah... which I now see you kindly mention in the manual. Opps :) My habit of skimming manuals once again works against me :)

Otherwise all those events get mixed in with other stuff. Yet, having all of those separate arcs starts to get problematic, especially when dealing with mult...

Re: Events vs. States

Re: Events vs. States
