Boundary event action property missing?

+1 vote
Well, yes, apparently. And that's okay, the problem is not the action but that boundary events behave just the same while they should stick to their respective action. As soon as there is one involved, automatic layout is no longer usable because it ruins the diagram. Do you plan to fix that somehow?

Yes, we do plan to support real attached events eventually. However, we have not yet decided when that will be.

In the meantime, you can fake attached events by converting the event node to a label for the action node. To do that, first reassign all edges connecting to the event to the action node. Then move the event over the action. Then use "Convert to Label" from the event's context menu. Now, place the event label at the desired position and adjust the reassigned edges' source and target ports so it looks like those edges connect to the label. Finally, use "Tools" -> "Constraints" -> "Port Constraints" to fix those edges' connection points for automatic layout.
