Simple text and editor

0 votes

yED is a really beautiful application, i compared to other availabe .. but don't you think that adding texts (like remarks, plain text sections etc) should be a core function of yED?

Today i was struggeling some hours to find out how such task can be accomplished, but there is none.

Even node labels can not be edited by singe word. And all i want to do, is formatting my "Remarks" texts.. some green & red words within a note.

It's sad to see that you did not think about a basic functionallity and i have to use different app for my work

This seems to be very similar to the following request, which already has some votes: http://yed.yworks.com/support/qa/96
I have the same opinion. It would be useful to be able to write text and place it on the sheet freely.

Node and edge labels support HTML. E.g. to get some red and green words use something along the lines of <html><body><font color="#FF0000">Red Text</font><br><font color="#00FF00">Green Text</font><br></body></html>

Puh, that are a lot of commands just for some simple text formating
I must use html markup for having a simple red, green color :-) ?
and where do i place this text? Within a node, which needs editing as well to have "readable" background and layout?
Such time conpsuption for a simple task?
