Layout of diagram is a resource intensive action. By default Visual Paradigm set the limit to handle maximum 300 connectors in single diagram when perform layout. If your diagram got more than 300 connectors then the following message will be shown when you try to perform layout.
In sequence diagram it is very common to use the activation bar to model the focus of control in runtime. In Visual Paradigm by default the activation bar of the lifeline will extend automatically along with its incoming and outgoing messages.
In my diagram the connector lines are being covered by their caption.
In UML Component Diagram the linkage between external contact of a component and the realization of that behavior can be linked with the delegation connector. It represent to forward the event from the external contact to target via the specified port. In Visual Paradigm you can create delegation connector between interface (the behavior) and port in following way: Read more
PERT Chart is a popular project management tool used to schedule, organize and coordinate task within a project. The word PERT stands for Program Evaluation Review Technique, a methodology developed by the U.S. Navy in 1950s to manage the Polaris submarine missile program. In Visual Paradigm the PERT Chart is not a stand still diagram, it can generate into actual executable tasks and assign to team members to carry out the work. In this article you will learn how to generate executable tasks form PERT Chart. Read more
Textual analysis is a tool for you to convert textual description of your system/problem into visual model elements. Starting from Visual Paradigm v14.2 SP1 you can create any type of model elements from textual analysis.Once you have the textual description of your system/problem entered to Textual Analysis editor: Read more
Composite Structure Diagram is a UML diagram specific for model the internal structure of a structured classifier or collaboration. Ports are often used to represent property of classifier that specifies a distinct interaction point between the classifier and its environment, or between the classifier and its internal parts. Same as a normal model elements in Visual Paradigm, the ports can be reused across diagram when reusing the parent classifier. In this article we will show you how to reuse the port of a classifier in different diagram. Suppose we have the composite structure diagram like below and we reuse the Car class on a different diagram.
To bring up the ports which already attached to the Car class: Read more
Tagged values offer a convenient way to define additional details to your models elements. In Visual Paradigm you can define tagged values for model elements in various data types, including plain text, integer, floating point number, Boolean, data and time, reference to another model elements, as well as HTML text. To create rick text tagged values: Read more
User story is a very important component in capturing and managing requirements. In Visual Paradigm you can create and manage user stories in agile development (scrum) approach using UeXceler. The user stories you created in UeXceler is not just for requirement management purpose, they can also visualize on diagram to provide extra annotation to visual models. To put your user story into diagram: Read more
When you maintaining, or even creating a diagram very often you may want to change an existing element into another model type. Unlike most of the diagramming software where user need to manually create the new element and re-establish the connectors, with Visual Paradigm you can done it in few clicks. In this article we will show you how it works. Read more
