Add BPMN2.0 Symbols with BPMN functionality

+1 vote

Dear Sirs,

referring to BPMN 2.0 Poster EN and BPMN 2.0 Poster DE, there are more inner symbols for events or activities. Is there a way to get them into the according drop box list? E.g. instead of being able to select between (Loop,Parallel,Ad Hoc) for activities select between (Loop,Parallel,Ad Hoc, Sequential and Compensation)

It would be nice to be able to draw BPMN 2.0, most of it requires IMHO only small additions to existing symbol catalogs.Just have a look at above mentioned posters.

Yours sincerely,

Peter Schmitz

Since yEd 3.9, symbols of all Events, Gateways, and Activity Markers are included. Additionally, there are Swimlanes and symbols of some of the Activities and Data Types.

We are currently working on including support for decorations of Activity nodes (i.e. marker and task type icons) as well as Data nodes (collection, input, and output icons).

Dear Peter, we do plan to add missing BPMN symbols but there is no schedule for this, yet.

In the meantime, I propose to have a look at the symbol import feature which allows to create node templates in the palette from images, SVG graphics and Visio stencils:  http://yed.yworks.com/support/manual/custom_nodes.html
