The mid June Beta drop for Design Room Live! is now available. Here are the major highlights:
Support for Keyboard shortcuts
You can now perform the activities like whiteboard creation etc., by using the keyboard shortcuts like Alt + n.
Here are the list of currently supported keyboard shortcuts and their functions:
Support for Whiteboard Templates
You can now create a new whiteboard based on a template!
As a first step, you can create a template whiteboard by enabling the Template option in the whiteboard creation/edit dialog.
A new template whiteboard will be created under the Whiteboard Templates container as follows:
Now, you can edit this template whiteboard diagram area same as the regular whiteboard.
Once the template is ready, it can be used to instantiate as many as new whiteboards as follows:
Support for UML Relationships creation
You can now easily create the UML relationships like Association, Dependency, Generalization and Realization etc. between the UML shapes like Class and Interface etc. Based on the selected relationship in the link edit dialog, appropriate link shape will be created.
As soon as a link is created from source UML element to the target UML element, link edit dialog will be opened. Now, the link edit dialog will have the list of valid (or permissible) relationships between the selected source and target UML elements.
For example, when a link is created between two UML classes, the link edit dialog will be as follows:
If you select the Generalization relationship, the link will be updated as follows:
For Association/Aggregation/Composition relationships you can also specify the source and target multiplicities.
