Context Menus for Graphical Editors

A context menu should be used for context sensitive interaction with the objects in a graphical editor. If an object is selected in an editor, and the context menu is opened, the context menu should only contain commands which are appropriate for the selection.

The categories within the context menu should be kept distinct from one another through the use of separators. The context menus for selected elements must have the following minimal set of categories:

Open, Open With, Show In
Cut, Copy, Paste, Remove from Diagram, Delete, Rename
Other Plugin Additions
