    [XP SP2; JDK 1.5.0_upg3; Eclipse 3.0.2; MyEclipse 4.0M1]

    1) The presentation style changes do not appear to persist in class diagrams – I haven’t tried other diagram types. I change packages and classes to No Fill and No Shadow/ Save and close eclipse/ Restart and pull up diagram again – default fills and shadow restored!

    2) Hide stereotype has no effect

    3) The ability to set project/global presentation defaults would be very welcome so they don’t have to be done on each object

    On further investigation I discover the UML preferences change the presentation of existing diagram elements. The only problem is that you can’t use these facilities to colour code diagrams.

    Ideally what is required is:

    1) Global & project defaults (diagram defaults is also useful!)
    2) Changing the defaults does not change existing diagram elements (perhaps with a prompt to override)
    3) Ability to select a set of elements in a diagram and change the presentation options for all of them
    4) The presentation options are attached to a digram element, not a model element (This is already there)

    The presentation options should cover all the show stuff – class compartments, visibility indicators, mutiplicity, stereotype symbols, and the basic graphics – fill, shadow etc.

    Bit much to ask when you’ve only just released it! Actually I’m just pleased that you’ve picked up the Argo torch. Please view this list as a longer range goal.
