how can i do hbds diagrams like that defined here http://pelle.stephane.free.fr/uml_vs_hbds.pdf

I'm seeing in 'manage custom properties' a way to add a list of custom properties to either edges/nodes.

The problem i see here is 2 fold.

1) the list of properties is defined for all edges/nodes.

  so if i want to defined a 6th one, but in the custom properties i provisionned only 5 then i have to add another one.... i guess it's possible to provition for that extra number without problem

2) custom properties have a common key name.
So if we need to use it even with other 2 limitations, it forces us to basically name custome porperties like property_n. where n is in [1-*]

3)  more important issue, though is that the properties are not displayable at all. Not even togglizable. It'd be great to have the flexibility of the edges/nodes label positioninig for each and every properties.

I'm still searching for a tool that would allow to create graphs like that shown here http://pelle.stephane.free.fr/uml_vs_hbds.pdf

but Really, there seems to be none.

yEd other than this apparent missing feature is a great piece of engineering.

I hope you can take this positively to further enhance yEd


keep up the good work guys

It is already possible to create diagrams like the ones depicted in the linked document in yEd:

Corresponding GraphML.

Moreover, no custom properties are necessary to do so.
